Chalmers is 4-0 in the early stages of his career, with four first-round finishes, but became embroiled in a contract dispute that stalled his progression.

At 31 he is no spring chicken and will be looking to gain momentum with this new deal, which MMA Junkie report to be a two-year, six-fight agreement.

“It’s a dream come true [to sign the deal],” Chalmers told Ultimate Boxxer.

“It was a long-winded process with BAMMA – it was haunting my career and I didn’t know why.

“We ended that in gentleman’s fashion though and luckily I can put that behind me now and move on.

“For me, it’s all about showing Bellator that I’m worth this big contract now.

“I’ve got to repay the faith they’ve shown in me and I will.

“We’re absolutely delighted to get this done and I can’t wait to get back out there again.”
