Bellator Fighting Championships today confirmed the signing of ex-UFC welterweight Yoshiyuki Yoshida (11-5). Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but "Zenko" will debut for the promotion on September 30th against an as-yet-unannounced opponent. The winner of the bout will be slotted into Bellator's Season 4 welterweight tournament. Yoshida was originally rumored to face Dan Hornbuckle on August 19th, but visa issues forced the Judo black belt out of the bout. Hornbuckle will instead meet another former UFC'er, "Bad" Brad Blackburn.
