News of the deal was first reported by Peter Carroll of MMA Fighting.

The Irishman, who is 11-4-1 in his professional career, scored arguably the biggest victory of his career in May when he knocked out the then 24-3 David Khachataryan in the main event of Fight Nights Global 87 in May.

He had been on the verge of a lightweight title shot in Fight Nights Global but will now turn his attention to the Bellator 155-pound frame.
