TUF 8 Finalist Phillipe Nover Signs With Bellator

Bellator Fighting Championship continues to make a splash in terms of signing talent, as Phillipe Nover announced on his Twitter account that he has inked a deal with the promotion.

“Yes it is true! I’m signed to Bellator Fighting Championship and I’ll be fighting on November 26th live at Caesars Atlantic City on MTV2!” Nover wrote.

Nover, who advanced to the finals of season eight of The Ultimate Fighter, also announced his opponent, Marcin Held.

Nover lost to Efrain Escudero in the finals of TUF. He also lost his next two UFC fights, falling to Kyle Bradley and Rob Emerson.

Another former UFC veteran, Kurt Pellegrino, will be on the Bellator 59 card in November, as he meets Patricky “Pitbull” Freire.
