February 6, 2016 7:28 am by Evan Bell

It’s been a big week for Bellator MMA.

Earlier this week Bellator MMA announced that they had signed former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson. Now, Bellator MMA President Scott Coker has announced that the promotion has signed former UFC standout Chris Leben.

Leben hasn’t fought since 2013 when he threw in the towel against Uriah Hall at UFC 168. The fight made it 4 straight losses for Leben, who has been winless since his 2011 KO win over Wanderlei Silva.

In addition, Bellator MMA signed heavyweight Sergei Kharitonov, who holds notable wins over UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, Andrei Arlovski, and Alistair Overeem.
