Bellator has announced the addition of Brazilian prospect Rafael Silva to their stacked bantamweight division, which includes the likes of Edurardo Dantas, Zach Makovsky, Marcos Galvao, and teammate Luis Nogueira. Silva (17-3) currently rides a nine-fight win-streak, seven of which come via stoppage.
“Signing with Bellator is by far the best thing that ever happened to me,” Silva said. “It’s a chance of showing the world what I can do inside the cage. My manager always tells me how great of an atmosphere Bellator has and I can’t wait to be part of it.”
“Morcego” joins several of his teammates in the Bellator cage, including Maiquel Falcao, Ricardo Tirloni, Genair da Silva, and the aforementioned Luis Nogueira.
