“Gunner” Signs With Bellator, Debuts May 4
Top MMA News favourite Nathan Gunn has announced via Twitter that he has signed a two year deal with Bellator Fighting Championships and is expected to make his promotional début on May 4 in Rama, Ontario. Providing Gunn receives clearance from the Ontario Commission, he would be making his début alongside teammate Matt Veal who takes on 2 time Bellator veteran Will Romero. Also making their début for Bellator on May 4 will be fellow Canadians Ryan Ford and Cory MacDonald.
“Gunner” will enter this contest on a two fight win streak over Nabil Khatib and Lindsey Hawkes in 2011. In the victory over Khatib, Gunn captured the Wreck MMA Welterweight Title in a dominant unanimous decision. Prior to his current resurgence, Gunn suffered a pair of devastating knockout losses in the MFC after going undefeated in his first seven bouts. With a victory in Bellator, Gunn should be well on his way to climbing back into the top ten of the Canadian Welterweight rankings.
