The signing was officially announced by Bellator in a press release on Thursday.

“We are always excited when we can bring in a talent like Talita to the organization,” Coker said. “This is just the beginning for women’s MMA here at Bellator. We want to make a very serious commitment to this division, and this is just the start.”

Nogueira (6-0) is a multiple-time jiu-jitsu champion and is currently ranked in the top ten in the women’s featherweight division. Four of her six career victories in mixed martial arts have come by submission and her last two wins have come by submission in the first round.

“Joining Bellator is like a dream come true,” Nogueira said. “Since I began my MMA career I wanted to compete in a promotion like Bellator so I want to thank Scott and Rich for bringing back women’s MMA to Bellator and I promise I will train harder than anyone to put on entertaining fights for Bellator.”

She is expected to make her debut in Bellator later this year.
