Bellator Re-Signs Undefeated Jordan Young, Signs Top Ukrainian Prospect

By James Lynch

Bellator MMA invested in its future Monday as the promotion re-signed undefeated American Top Team prospect Jordan Young and picked up undefeated welterweight Yaroslav Amosov. 

Shawn Bitter of MMA-Today was the first to report Young re-upping with Bellator, and FloCombat has confirmed from a source in the California-based promotion that he's signed a long-term contract. 

Young (8-0 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) is coming off an impressive first-round submission victory over Alec Hooben at Bellator 185 last month. That win marked the sixth career submission victory for the 23-year-old. Young started his career in October 2014 primarily fighting for the Iowa-based Midwest Cage Championship, where he captured the 185-pound championship in 2015. Earlier this year, Young signed with Bellator and has since picked up wins over previously undefeated middleweights Chris Harris and Tim Caron. 

Amosov (19-0) has mainly cut his teeth in the Russian-based Tech-Krep FC promotion throughout his career. The 24-year-old has only gone the distance twice in his career and boasts eight career wins by knockout along with nine submission victories. "Dynamo" won the vacant Tech-Krep FC welterweight title in June 2016 and has successfully defended the belt twice. Amosov most recently defeated Nathan Oliveira by first-round submission at Tech-Krep FC: Prime Selection 17 in August. 

Stay tuned to FloCombat for more information as to when we'll see these two blue-chip prospects in the Bellator cage.
