Ulysses Gomez Joins Bellator’s Season Three Bantamweight Tournament

Ulysses GomezOne day after claiming the Tachi Palace Fights flyweight title, submission grappler Ulysses Gomez has been added to Bellator’s season three bantamweight tournament, which will crown the promotion’s first-ever 135-pound champ when it gets underway in August.

Gomez improved to 6-1 with a five-round unanimous decision over jiu-jitsu black belt Luis Gonzalez on Wednesday in California.

“My brother (pro soccer player Herculez Gomez) is a great athlete and a role model to me,” Gomez said in a release. “My own career, on the other hand, is just getting started and I think Bellator is going to take me to the next level. I love the tournament format, I love that they market to Hispanics. God’s given me the talent, so now I want to make the most of it.”

Gomez joins Danny Tims and Mark Oshiro as confirmed participants for the bantamweight tourney.
