UFC veteran Brian Foster signs with Bellator, targets Ben Askren

CHICAGO, Ill. (November 1, 2011) — Brian Foster has a message for the Bellator welterweight division and its champion Ben Askren:

"I’m coming."

The former UFC fighter who won his last two fights in the UFC and who sports a 18-5 record as a welterweight has recently signed with Bellator Fighting Championships in a deal that adds another legitimate contender to Bellator’s already stacked welterweight division.

Currently riding a four-fight win streak, including a TKO win over Forrest Petz and a submission victory against Matt Brown during his UFC run, Foster, who has finished all 18 of his career wins, is hitting his stride and has one thing on his mind.

"I’m getting that belt," Foster said. "I want to fight the best. I want to fight Ben Askren and take home that belt. I ran through my last two opponents and I’m better than I’ve ever been. I’m very happy to be a part of Bellator and I’m coming for the top spot."

The Granite City, Illinois fighter has never gone to a decision in his career. With 10 wins by submission and eight by TKO/KO, the exciting Foster should add another threat to an already stacked welterweight division.

Despite a medical setback in his career, Foster says he’s now 100 percent healthy and ready to start on his road to the championship.

"I’ve been seen by two of the best doctors in the state, they’ve medically cleared me and I feel great," Foster added. "I’m looking forward to facing Bellator’s best and becoming the next welterweight champion."
