While Alessio went 0-2 in his last UFC stint, competing at lightweight, the longtime MMA veteran was competitive in both fights with Mark Bocek and Shane Roller. “The Natural” will be a solid veteran addition to the Bellator lightweight division and will likely debut with the promotion either late this summer or early in the fall.
