Less than a month after making history by becoming the first-ever British world champion in a major MMA organization, undefeated Liam McGeary (10-0) has signed a multi-fight, multi-year contract extension with Bellator MMA.
The seven-fight Bellator MMA veteran set a promotional record for most submission attempts (11) in a fight en route to defeating Emanuel Newton to win the Bellator light heavyweight championship at Bellator: The British Invasion on Feb 27.
“I’m excited to have signed this contract extension with Bellator,” said the newly crowned champion. “I know that I’ve got a target on my back as Champion, but I’ve never been one to walk away from a fight. Whoever Scott Coker decides to put across the cage from me next, it doesn’t matter. To me, their name might as well be ‘Victory No. 11’. I look forward to working with Coker and Spike TV for years to come.”
