The Dominator dropped from Welterweight to Lightweight for his last outing against Rhys McKee, collecting the BAMMA Lightweight title with a comprehensive decision victory over three rounds.
Brazier (10-1) is thought to have signed a multi-fight deal in the region of 18 months though his debut has not yet been set.
Bellator and BAMMA have had a pretty good working relationship in recent years. Much like Brave Combat Federation, Bellator are on a run to snap up more UK and Irish based fighters for European events, landing them on exclusive promotion deals.
SBG’s Will Fleury made his Bellator debut in Rome earlier this month, while Norman Parke has also put pen to paper on a Bellator contract. They join the likes of Brian Moore, Charlie Ward, James Gallagher and more under contract for the US promotion.
Whether Brazier’s debut comes on US soil or closer to home should be revealed in a few weeks.
