June 2010: Delgado after his first victory at 145lbs since leaving the UFC
UFC veteran and The Ultimate Fighter contestant Roli Delgado confirmed to me today that he has signed with Bellator Fighting Championships. He is set to face WEC veteran Jameel Massouh who's on a 4 fight win streak, at 145lbs Feather Weight at Bellator 37, Saturday March 19th at the Lucky Star Casino, Concho, Oklahoma. I asked Delgado to comment on the fight:
"We are both tall and lean, experienced and respectful fighters. I imagine we wont have much pre fight trash talk but one hell of a fight!" -Roli Delgado
Delgado has won two MMA fights since leaving the UFC, taken part in submission tournaments such as Grapplers Quest as well as taking part and winning his first Professional Muay Thai fight.
Roli Delgado coaches and fights out of the Westside MMA team in Little Rock, Arkansas.
