Welch (9-4) got the TKO first round win over Chip Moraza-Pollard in the first fight of the show that gives the competitors to sign to Bellator MMA. He lost to Michail Tsarev at Bellator last year via submission.
The show lets you chose your coach; Randy Coruture, Greg Jackson, Frank Shamrock, or Joe Warren. After some deliberation, Welch chose Jackson, who consequently trains fellow Montanan Keith Jardine.
Fightmatser airs every Wednesday on Spike TV.
