Bellator Inks KO Artists Guillaume DeLorenzi, Rafael Silva To Deals

Despite losing some fighters over the past few months, Bellator Fighting Championships continues to push forward.

Recently, Bellator signed rising prospect Guillaume DeLorenzi to the lightweight division. DeLorenzi is 9-1 in his career and trains with notable trainer Firas Zahabi – the man in charge of Georges St-Pierre.

“All I’m thinking about is collecting some victories and getting into the next lightweight tournament,” said DeLorenzi, in a recent press release. “It’s a huge honor to be fighting with Bellator, and I want that belt.”

Bellator CEO and Chairman Bjorn Rebney said, “Our talent development team has been focused on Guillaume DeLorenzi for some time. He’s a dynamic fighter who has great potential in the coming years.”

DeLorenzi has been on the sidelines since 2010 due to an injury. The Canadian is on a four-fight win streak.

Bellator has also signed Rafael Silva to compete in the bantamweight division.

“Morcega” is 17-3 in his career, including nine consecutive victories.

“Signing with Bellator is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me,” said Silva, in a press release. “My goal is to be the Bellator bantamweight champion and to serve as an example for all the poor children in the world.”
