Bryan Baker entered mixed martial arts in 2007 and immediately encountered success, making it into the WEC after a mere four fights. Following a 9-1 run to start his career, Baker made his Bellator debut. "The Beast" is one of the promotion's most experienced fighters, having competed in three tournaments in two weight classes. The inspirational leukemia survivor was a season two finalist and advanced to the season five semifinals, both at 185 pounds.
Following a shocking first round defeat against Vitor Vianna, Baker made the move to welterweight. "The Beast" has gone a perfect 2-0 down at 170, beating the highly touted Carlos Pereira and previous tournament finalist Ben Saunders. In his second tournament final, Baker lost to the aggressive Karl Amoussou by submission at Bellator 72. He then filled in for an injured Brent Weedman in the Bellator Season 8 Welterweight Tournament and lost to Douglas Lima.
