Strikeforce veteran Roger Bowling has signed a contract with the UFC. Bowling joins a list of several Strikeforce fighters to venture over to the Octagon with the promotion closing up shop this month.
“Just received my UFC contract for 2013!” Bowling posted on Facebook recently. “This is going to be (an) AWESOME year! Hoping to get a fight late March or early April.”
Bowling (11-3) had a two-fight win streak snapped by current welterweight title contender Tarec Saffiedine in August. He was a member of the Strikeforce Challengers promotion for over a year before going 2-1 with Strikeforce.
