Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champion Wilson Reis (11-2) will look to build off of his 4-2 record under the Bellator Fighting Championship banner by winning the Season 4 featherweight tournament set to begin in March 2011.
Bellator announced the news on Jan. 28. Reis joins a tournament roster that includes Eric Larkin, Zac George, and Kenny Foster.
Reis holds notable wins over Shad Lierley, Deividas Taurosevicious, and current Bellator champ Zack Makovsky.
“I’m wiser in this sport right now than I’ve ever been before,” Reis said in a Jan. 28 press release. “I’ve been training for four years now so I’m really starting to understand every aspect of the game. The wrestling, the jiu-jitsu and the kickboxing, and blending them all together. I’m better than I’ve ever been right now.”
