The former UFC fighter, and three-time Bellator tournament competitor has been released by Bellator.
MMAMania.com confirmed the news via Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, who said “I’ve been a ‘Killa B’ fan for years, and Ben’s given 100 percent of his heart every single time he’s stepped into the Bellator cage.”
“After competing in three Bellator tournaments, Ben could never get to the top of that mountain,” Rebney said. “As we continue to grow and expand I spoke to Ben and we both decided it was time to move in a different direction, so we provided Ben his complete release [from Bellator]”
It is still not clear where Saunders will end up now that he has been released from the two biggest MMA promotions in the world.Tags: Bellator, bellator news, ben saunders, Bjorn Rebney, Killa Bee, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc
