Bellator Fighting Championships announced today the exclusive signing of undefeated mixed martial artist Jacob “Tick-Tock” McClintock, who will compete in Bellator’s welterweight (170 lb.) division.
McClintock, 21, of the heralded Arizona Combat Sports gym in Tempe, Ariz., has a professional record of 6-0 and has been identified by several top MMA publications as one of the sport’s future stars.
Sherdog.com called him “the next big thing to come out of Arizona Combat Sports,” which has produced such elite MMA talents as Jamie Varner, Ryan Bader and Joe Riggs. BloodyElbow.com, meanwhile, said that McClintock “definitely has the makings to become a future champion in any of the larger organizations.”
