In a fantastic piece of signing news for any fan of the stand-up game, Bellator has signed highly decorated Muay Thai fighter Cosmo Alexandre. Cosmo will make his debut at Bellator 52 on October 1. He'll be competing in the Lightweight division, with no opponent yet announced for his debut.

The 29 year old fighter is a veteran of the international Muay Thai scene, with some very impressive stand-up credentials. Highlights of his Muay Thai and kickboxing career include winning the It's Showtime 77kg title, and the prestigious King's Cup tournament in Thailand in 2009. He possesses excellent kicks, and a beautiful jumping knee that he has used to win a number of fights.

Recently, Alexandre has been training extensively with Rashad Evans and K-1 fighter Tyrone Spong, helping work with Evans before his UFC 133 fight with Tito Ortiz. Alexandre has spoken openly of his desire to transition into MMA, and has been focusing on his ground skills and grappling game in order to make that move.

In short, Cosmo Alexandre has the potential to raise the level of technically proficient striking in Bellator's Lightweight division. If he does indeed get a decent ground game together, he could be a true force in Bellator's exciting Lightweight division.
