FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that top lightweight Gesias “JZ” Calvancante has expressed interest in the possibility of joining the fledgling Mixed Martial Arts organization Bellator’s second season.
The bit of information came in a conversation with Bellator CEO/founder Bjorn Rebney at this past Friday’s Bellator VI event. American Top Team’s Calvancante attended a previous Bellator card where he stated his interest to Rebney in involving himself with Season Two’s lightweight tournament.
The young Brazilian is widely regarded as one of the top 155-pound fighters in the sport. He is 12-1-1 in his last fourteen bouts and is scheduled to compete against Tatsuya Kawajiri at DREAM 9 on May 26, 2009.
