“Killa B” first made his name well known originally as a contestant on Season 6 of The Ultimate Fighter. He then competed in the UFC, winning his first 3 bouts, eventually going 4-3 before being released after suffering losses in 3 of his next 4 fights.
Saunders then went on to compete in Bellator, amounting a record of 7-3–with 2 losses coming against the current champ, Douglas Lima–and reaching the welterweight tournament finals twice.
31 year old Ben Saunders now joins a stacked welterweight division in Titan FC, with the likes of Matt Riddle, Brock Jardine, Mike Bronzoulis, Daniel Roberts, and Jose Landi-Jons.
Saunders also made his intentions known, as he tweet that he is hoping to get a call from the UFC for a 2nd stint.
