MMAJunkie reports that Swedish middleweight prospect Jack Hermansson (5-0) has been snatched by the Bellator. Undefeated Hermansson that trains in Norway hails from the Team Hellboy where he trains under Norwegian legend Joachim “Hellboy” Hansen among other coaches. Hermansson brings heavy hands and solid wrestling to the cage. He has won all of his five pro fights by finish, scoring four knock outs and one submission win. His debut fight at the Bellator hasn’t been decided yet.
Hermansson earned his signature win at the Cage Warriors 45 in April of 2011 when he knocked out UK-based Ali Arish (14-2) in the second round with a punch kick combination.
Bellator is once again looking for the Nordic’s for signing top talent. Sweden’s Andreas Spang was a late entry into the middleweight tournament, but made a splash with a huge KO and birth into the finals against Maiquel Falcao. Finland’s Marcus “the Caveman” Vänttinen was recently featured in the cage at Bellator 69, while Denmark’s Mikkel Parlo has also been inked and waiting for his debut.
