Former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ finalist Kris ‘Savage’ McCray has signed a multi-fight deal to compete in Bellator Fighting Championships.
Sources close to the fighter confirmed the deal to MMAWeekly.com on Thursday.
Kris McCray made his way to the season 11 finale of the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ before being defeated by Court McGee back in June 2010.
McCray would exit the UFC after two more losses, but his last fight was an extremely close affair during a three round battle with British fighter John Hathaway.
Since his exit from the UFC, McCray has racked up two wins in a row on the regional fighting circuit and will not hope to continue that success as he competes for Bellator starting later this year.
McCray has now been a mainstay working in New Jersey at Ricardo Almeida’s gym alongside UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and their team.
While nothing has been confirmed at this time, the current timeline for McCray’s debut is like for one of the upcoming Bellator shows in April.
