It took some time to get a deal done, but Lorenz Larkin (#9) is officially a member of the Bellator roster. Larkin (18-5, 1 NC) has been a free agent since August 26, 2016. It is reported that UFC did not offer Larkin a contract until this month, which he turned down.
This is the 2nd stint for Larkin with CEO Scott Coker, formerly with Strikeforce.
It is also expected that free agent Light Heavyweight Ryan Bader will soon sign with Bellator.
