UFC veteran, and The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finalist, Phillipe Nover has inked a deal with Bellator, and will be making his debut this November. The Filipino announced the news on twitter:

Yes it is true! I'm signed to Bellator Fighting Championship and I'll be fighting on November 26th live at Caesars Atlantic City on MTV2!less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

 

He also went on to mention that it won't be for a tournament, and instead, will be facing Marcin Held, a Polish fighter with a record of 11-2.

Nover, who also works as a nurse, has been largely inactive after his decision loss, and subsequent release from the UFC back in February 2010. He was victorious on his comeback fight as a late replacement though, shaking off 18 months of ring rust, and winning a decision against Jake Murphy last month.

Phillipe "The Filipino Assassin" Nover (5-3-1):
Win - Jake Murphy Decision (Unanimous) - Hoosier FC 8
Loss - Robert Emerson Decision (Unanimous) - UFC 109

Marcin Held (11-2):
Win - Kaleo Kwan Submission (kneebar) - AFC 2
Loss - Michael Chandler Technical Submission (arm triangle choke) - Bellator 36
