Rob McCullough at WEC 44

Former WEC lightweight champion “Razor” Rob McCullough has signed a new deal to compete in Bellator Fighting Championships as a part of their upcoming season 4 lightweight tournament.

A veteran of 25 professional fights, McCullough has fought in several major organizations over the years, most notably spending time in the WEC where he reigned as champion as previously mentioned.

McCullough underwent a rough patch in his career that saw him exit the Zuffa promotion after losing 2 out of his last 3 fights with the organization.

Since that time, McCullough has racked up back-to-back wins over Isaac DeJesus and former “Ultimate Fighter” competitor Corey Hill.

“I’m really glad to be part of a promotion as great as Bellator,” McCullough said via press released.   “I’m ready to get back to work, and finish fights. Getting in the cage and being able to mix it up with the best of the best is what I’m in this sport for. I’ve been doing this for 15 years for a reason, and it’s to test myself against the best competition in the world. I’ll be able to do that at Bellator.”

There has been no official word on when the season 4 lightweight tournament will start, but McCullough will compete alongside 7 other 155lbers for the chance to get a crack at the title held by top ranked fighter Eddie Alvarez at some point in the future.
