(Ben Askren is the disease. And the Whitemare is the cure.)
From somersault knockout kicks to ill-advised backflipping guard-pass attempts, Marius Zaromskis has developed a high-risk, high-insanity MMA style that’s all his own. And though a 2010 stint in Strikeforce went terribly — with TKO losses against Nick Diaz and Evangelista Santos, and a depressing 6-second no-contest against Waachim Spiritwolf — the Lithuanian striker is preparing to give it another go for a rival American promotion.
MMAFighting.com breaks the news that Zaromskis has signed with Bellator, and will make his debut this year in the later part of their sixth season. Though he would have made an excellent replacement for War Machine, Zaromskis will not be a part of the welterweight tournament. We’ll update you when we know more about his promotional debut date and first opponent.
