Free From Bellator, Jay Hieron To Try Luck With Legacy FC
By Mark Wayne | April 25, 2012 |
The welterweight fighter revealed the news via Twitter:
Jus got my release from BELLATOR..Time to work my way up too the top!!
The 35-year-old Xtreme Couture representative went on a hotly-contested run in the Bellator season four welterweight tournament, where he earned controversial wins over Anthony Lapsley, Brent Weedman and Rick Hawn to take the tourney. Hieron lost via controversial decision himself when he took on Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren and started looking for a way out of the promotion when he wasn't granted an immediate rematch.
Now, it appears that The Thoroughbred will join Junior Assuncao on the Legacy Fighting Championships 12 fight card, which is scheduled to take place on July 13 in Houston, Texas.
Hieron has not yet been assigned an opponent for the card.
