Zelg Galesic

Former Cage Rage middleweight champion and Dream veteran Zelg Galešic has just inked a deal with Bellator. He’ll make his debut as part of the promotion’s next middleweight tournament, which is set to begin in September.

Coming into the promotion off the back of a first-round knockout of Lee Chadwick, Galešic has amassed a 10-5 record and is looking to find a permanent home following the gradual demise of the Japanese scene.

At the time of publication there have been no specifics regarding who he is likely to face in the quarterfinal bracket. The winner of the tournament earns a shot at the Bellator middleweight championship currently held by Hector Lombard.

MMAWeekly.com will continue to follow Bellator developments with the tournament moving forward.
