It looks like the UFC has added one of the lightweight division’s most dangerous grapplers to its roster, as Marcin Held is reporting he’s signed with the promotion.
The 24 year-old, Polish fighter recently announced that his run with Bellator was over and that he was hoping to land in the UFC. Today Held reported on Twitter that he’s headed to the Octagon.

If you’ve never watched Held fight, then you should know he’s a BJJ black belt, and that he has a nasty submission game. Particularly when it comes to leglocks. So, it will be fun to see what he can do in the UFC’s 155 division.
