<![CDATA["Frodo" Khashbulaev is finally released from Bellator]]>Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:54:23 GMThttp://combatbear.com/6/post/2014/12/frodo-khashbulaev-is-finally-released-from-bellator.html
It's been a long time since the Bellator Season 8 featherweight tournament winner Magomedrasul "Frodo" Khashbulaev (21-5) first wanted to leave Bellator to move on, and now the Russian has finally been released by the organization. The information is confirmed by Scott Coker himself.
“We encountered difficulties obtaining a working visa for ‘Frodo,’ and as a result, we are releasing him from Bellator so he can continue fighting elsewhere,” said Bellator President Scott Coker. “Frodo is a great fighter and we wish him the best moving forward.”

Khashbulaev was begging the promotion to release him wanting to obtain a visa to United States for a long time, but former Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney didn't want to give the Sambo fighter his blessing, and that goes for Eddie Alvarez too who is currently fighting under UFC after Coker became the new president. "Frodo" even took his way to twitter accusing Bellator for his visa trouble. I never thought that would help, but I'm really glad it did, even if it means Bellator is losing such talant.

28-year-old Khashbulaev has a
 5-0 record in Bellator finishing 4 of the fights before the final bell and only Mike Richman at Season Eight Featherweight Tournament Final in April last year managed to go the whole distance and also lose the tournament.

One of the highest profiles in the earlier era of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Jens Pulver (27-19-1), will be back in the bussiness again in a fight against undefeated Indonesian Fransino Tirta (16-0-1) at ONE FC 26 next year.

Pulver became a 40-year-old on December 6, nearing the end of his fighting career. He has had three fights under ONE FC where the former UFC Lightweight Champion won only one, against Zhao Ya Fei by technical decision, and lost to Eric Kelly by TKO and to Masakatsu Ueda by submission. 

33-year-old Tirta has six submissions and seven TKO/KO's most of which happened in the first round, also his debut fight at the biggest Asian MMA promotion when he finished by choke Sami Amin at ONE FC 17 in his home country.
