Sonnen has signed a deal to compete in Bellator MMA, promotional officials confirmed to on Thursday evening. The Associated Press first reported the news. Sonnen proved to be one of the biggest draws in the UFC’s history after nearly defeating Anderson Silva at UFC 117 during the height of the former champion’s reign atop the 185-pound division.
