Bellator FC signs top heavyweight prospect, Ron Sparks to an exclusive long-term contract

Bellator FC have signed top heavyweight prospect, Ron Sparks to an exclusive long-term contract after he impressed them so much in his previous outing with the promotion. Sparks earned the lucrative contract and a spot on their heavyweight tournament, set to go down in 2011, by pulling off a devastating 50-second knockout of the previously unbeaten Greg Maynard at Bellator 30 in September.

Sparks, speaking via a press release, said:

“I want to be like Mike Tyson was in the 1980?s. I’m coming in there to knock you out, and that’s just the way I’m going to come. I’m coming in there to rip your head off. I want to catch them on the chin and be done with them.”

“When that bell rings and I come out, people are going to be like, ‘This guy is for real,’ because when I come across that cage, I’m going to be throwing hell for a good 15 minutes. I want the Bellator heavyweight title, and I’ll be ready to go through hell to get it.”
