Mike Richman, Mikkel Parlo, Raphael Butler, Houston Alexander, Isao Kobayashi and Thiago Jambo are the others.
Jansen 920-4) won seven of his nine fights with the promotion, but is coming off back-to-back losses to then-champion Will Brooks and Marcin Held. Richman (18-6) fought 12 times for Bellator but is serving a two-year suspension for a failed drug test.
The others combined to win nine fights for Bellator, including four each by Parlo and Butler.
