Bellator MMA signed undefeated featherweight prospect, Julio Cesar “Morceguinho” Neves (28-0). The 19-year-old has 25 finishes out of his 28 career victories.
The Brazilian has competed fifteen times this year, averaging almost three fights a month. “Morceguinho” is also the owner of 17 wins via TKO/KO. “I came to Bellator to fight the best in the world,” Neves said. “The Bellator Featherweight division has some of the best fighters in the world, and I want to fight the best.”
When Neves will make his Bellator debut is still unknown. Neves will be entering a very stacked division with fighters such as Pat Curran, Patricio Pitbull, Daniel Straus, and more. Neves finished by saying “I just can’t wait to fight in the United States and show what I can do.”
