Tesanovic brings a perfect 7-0 record to the promotion with five wins coming via TKO or KO. Tesanovic regularly displays a dangerous clinch game and very technical ground skills.
One of the fastest rising prospects at 185 lbs, Tesanovic was recently named one of the top ten European prospects.
“Dragan Tesanovic has tremendous potential to become a dominant middleweight,” said Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney. “His diverse training regime and quickly progressing skill-set set the table for him to make substantial impact in our 185 division.
Although he only has four years of formal MMA training under his belt, Tesanovic has yet to taste defeat in the cage. Before getting into MMA Tesanovic regularly participated in Serbian submission-fighting competitions of which he holds five-first-place finishes.
The Serbian standout also holds an impressive win over Polish Judo fighter Antoni Chmielewski.
