The Bellator heavyweight division just got a lot bigger.
MMAjunkie today verified with a Bellator official that the promotion has inked 6-foot-8 heavyweight Steven Mowry to an exclusive multi-fight contract.
Mowry (4-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) also posted a photo on social media of him signing the contract (via Instagram):
Proud to announce that I’ve signed with @bellatormma As always I would like to thank God for the opportunities and people he’s placed in my path to make this possible. Big thanks to all my coaches and training partners past and present for helping me to the point I’m at now. Looking forward to what the future holds.
Mowry, 25, is less than two years into his professional MMA career. He’s off to a hot start, winning all four of his fights by stoppage, with each victory coming via a different method.
Training out of Hard Knocks 365 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Mowry has fought all of his bouts under the Titan FC banner. His most recent fight was a second-round TKO of Said Sowma at Titan FC 49 in April.
Mowry said he’s not yet sure when he will make his Bellator debut. However, he did share a comment to MMAjunkie thanking those around him for helping him take a prominent step forward in his career.
“I would like to thank God, my coaches and teammates past and present,” Mowry said. “And the countless people who make my dreams possible.”
