Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney has denied reports that Cheick Kongo signed with the promotion, but hinted that it could be in the works with his word selection.
Kongo’s team, Wolfslair, has been busy with Bellator since announcing the signing of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
“They’ve got a terrific stable of talent, Wolfslair,” said Rebney. “You’re going to see some announcements coming out literally in the next couple weeks about more Wolfslair talent that’s going to be coming in with Bellator.”
Kongo ended his seven year run with the UFC last month, posting an 11-6-1 record for them. His final appearance was a first round knockout loss to Roy Nelson at UFC 159.
