Mads Burnell former UFC fighter released signed with Cage Warriors, Eventually becoming Cage Warriors Featherweight Champion after three wins with Cage Warriors.
Since he became Cage Warriors Featherweight Champion was one of the hottest Featherweight prospects in the world. Think UFC would give Burnell another chance but Bellator would sign Mads Burnell instead.
“To be honest, I’ve been hot for Bellator for a couple of years. It was natural, and the opportunity was there. It was just natural. It was perfect,” said Burnell, who would later add that he believed Bellator to be “a super-cool promotion.”https://cagesidepress.com/2020/10/09/bellator-248-mads-burnell-why-bellator/
Bellator signed no 35 year old UFC Featherweight, Instead Burnell is only 26 year old. Now aiming to be the Bellator Featherweight Champion.
Before coming Bellator Featherweight Champion has to fight some tough Featherweights. Bellator debut is against Darko Banovic.
Impressive win against Darko Banovic will help Burnell quickly to get interesting fights as he can rise through the Bellator Featherweight rankings.
Me personally looking forward to Mads Burnell Bellator career. Nothing wrong having a second chance with the second greatest promotion!!
