Jornel Lugo 24 year old 4-0 Bantamweight Prospect fought on Bellator 252 with a impressive win against Schyler Sootho. Lugo improved as the rounds went on. Third round was his best.
Earned himself a Bellator contract with his Bellator 252 win. No brainer for Scott Coker and Rich Chau to sign Jornel Lugo.
“I’m pretty sure I should be getting a contract with that performance I mean I think I deserve one I’m four, I’m five and now so I think I deserve one.”https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/11/jornel-lugo-confident-contract-after-win-bellator-252-video
Jornel Lugo if he signs with Bellator will have a long promising career. First fight I watched of him and I was impressed how he mixed up his wrestling and striking.
“I hope that after this fight I’ll be getting a contract,” Lugo said. “I defiantly want to win this fight and get back in. I think February would be a good time for me. In five years I defiantly want to be fighting for a world championship. I’m not sure where I want to go but I just know I do want to prosper in my sport. Wherever that takes me I’m going to keep winning.”https://mymmanews.com/jornel-lugo-looks-to-keep-his-winning-streak-going-at-bellator-252-and-beyond/
Jornel Lugo signs a fight deal with Bellator looking forward to him fighting Bellator Bantamweights such as Keith Lee, Eduardo Dantas, James Gallagher. Fighters he talked about going against in the future but only has 5 Professional Fights
3-5 fights to go before facing Eduardo Dantas but a fight against Keith Lee actually makes sense.
“I definitely want to keep growing I’m only 5-0 I have a lot I still have to work on but I definitely have my eyes on all of these guys. ” Jornel Lugo
Keith Lee vs Jornel Lugo definitely a fun Bellator Bantamweight Prospect to watch in the winter of 2021. See if Lugo has what it takes facing a talented prospect like Keith Lee whose Kevin Lee’s brother but making a name for himself in Bellator. Keith Lee currently has a record of 7-3.
However if Lugo doesn’t get a chance to fight Keith Lee, I’d be interested to see who Lugo faces next and in 2021. Only will improve in every fight, We can see Jornel Lugo fighting a title or being a title contender in the next 3-5 years!!
