Jose Augusto “Gugu” is the newest member of Pitbull Brothers gym to join the Bellator roster, promotion officials told MMA Fighting.
“Gugu” (6-2, 1 no contest) inked a multi-fight with the North American-based company to compete in the light heavyweight division. In his most recent appearances, the 28-year-old talent scored four stoppage victories as a heavyweight in Brazil, three by knockout.
Bellator has yet to book a date and opponent for Augusto’s debut. The Brazilian fighter is also willing to compete as a heavyweight in the future.
