Looks like a thinning UFC welterweight division is putting on a few pounds.

170 to be exact, as Golden Glory welterweight Siyar Bahadurzada today (Sept. 30, 2011) announced his addition to the world's largest fight promotion via his official Twitter account:

I wanna thank the and for this opportunity. I will shake up the ww division!!! Also special thanks to my team Golden Glory!

The signing was worth it just to hear Bruce Buffer try to nail this in one take.

Bahadurzada (20-4) recently ran roughshod over the competition in the Ultimate Glory Welterweight Tournament, capturing the crown and knocking out all three of his opponents in the process.

Aside from terrorizing the ranks on the International scene, the Afghan native is the current Shooto 183-pound champion and hasn't lost since Jorge Santiago heel-hooked him back in 2008.

An exciting addition to the UFC roster ... but who do you, as a fan, want to see him fight first?

Fantasy matchmakers, let's hear what you've got.
