UFC signs M-1 Global lightweight champion Roman Bogatov

UFC lightweight division just got a little more competitive

According to M-1 Global, undefeated lightweight champion Roman Bogatov (10-0-0) is now on the UFC roster.

In a tweet by M-1 Global Monday, the 28 year old Russian was shown signing his contract papers.

The UFC has not publicly confirmed Bogatov’s signing or first fight as of this writing.

Bogatov last fought in August, defeating Mickael Lebout by injury stoppage at M-1 Challenge 104 in August.

M-1 Global and the UFC signed a deal in 2018 which allows M-1 champions to leave for the UFC.
