Congratulations on the new Bellator star AJ McKee defeating the face of Bellator Patricio “Pitbull’ Friere. AJ McKee is the new Bellator Featherweight Champion.
Now it’s time to defend his Bellator Featherweight title but against who?
Mads Burnell former UFC fighter, Cage Warriors Featherweight Champion is now 3-0 with Bellator. Defeating the GREAT Emmanuel Sanchez at Bellator 263 in a unanimous decision win. Shows how talented Mads Burnell defeated a former Bellator Featherweight title challenger, Giving Pitbull his toughest of his life.
Burnell vs Sanchez was a back & forth fight, Testament to Burnell’s mental toughness and cardio going a high paced three round fight.
“I can say hands down for sure, I’m the slickest 145er in the world,” Burnell said at the post-fight news conference. “It may seem like I’m getting hit, but I’m rolling with the punches and all that stuff. I saw the significant strikes after the fight and I was like, ‘What the hell, man?’ Of course, he hit me with a little bit, but the shots he hit me with was like nothing.”
Mads Burnell in his own right is one talented dude and will give AJ McKee a tough fight. Mads Burnell definitely deserves it after beating the title contender Emmanuel Sanchez.
Questionaire “Is AJ someone that you want to take.”
Answer ” Yeah later of course if that’s who if I have to fight for the title that’s who I have to fight.”
Burnell needs to rest, Chill with his family and fall of 2021 we can see AJ McKee have his first title defense.
Burnell will give AJ Mckee a different look, Definitely a slick fighter. A chin, Has some hands. NO GI Brazilian Jiu Jitsu European Champion. Definitely one of the best Jiu-Jitsu players in the Bellator Featherweight Division.
Jason Jackson STANDOUT performance fighting former UFC Lightweight Champion Benson Henderson defeating him at Bellator 253 in all together dominant performance. Benson had his moments but Jason Jackson looked a lot better.
Great spot for Jason Jackson to keep building his brand, Gaining more fans as they look forward to his next fight.
Jackson deserves top Bellator Welterweight fighters like Lorenz Larkin, Andrey Koreskov, Derek Anderson and Yaroslav Amosov. No reason to fight rising Weltereights anymore with a win against Benson Henderson.
“So taking out legend like Benson Henderson it just shows me that I can takeout the Bellator champ anyone either 155.” Jason Jackson
Not the biggest fan of calling out fighters, Prefers waiting for the next opponent.
“It doesn’t matter to me I just want to go out there and just put on a good show it doesn’t matter who when I just want to put on a good show you know I’m not out here picking and choosing because you have a lot of guys that’s ahead in the division that putting in work as well. ” Jason Jackson
Jason Jackson can fight the best of the best Bellator Welterweights since he trains with Gilbert Burns and used to train with Kamaru Usman, Vicente Luque on a daily basis.
Jason Jackson vs Andrey Koreshkov, Jackson vs Amosov, Jackson vs Larkin are all interesting fights for him.
Jackson vs Yaroslav Amosov especially. Two high high level Bellator Welterweights, I’ll be looking forward to seeing if Jackson is the toughest fight up to that point for Yaroslav Amosov.
Overall the “Ass Kicking Machine” Jason Jackson DESERVES a top Bellator Welterweight that leads to a title shot!!
Bellator stole Alex Polizzi out of the UFC’s hands and looked impressive over former Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Rafael Carvalho in his Bellator debut.
Rare for a newly signed Bellator prospect to get matched up against a top Bellator fighter. However the former LFA Light Heavyweight Champion took advantage of the opportunity and defeated Rafael Carvalho.
“Excellent opponent, and I know we’re getting to higher elite levels,” Polizzi later added. While he said he wasn’t exactly disappointed, he knows he can do even better. “Come Monday, we’re back at it in the gym, we’re looking back at this Carvalho fight saying ‘hey, we goofed up here, hey, we should have done better here,’ and we’re just looking at building on where we’re already at.”
“I’m happy that Bellator gave me a shot to be in a match like this,” Polizzi said. “Not everybody gets the chance to use the skills they’ve developed. My skills just happen to be hurting people, and I’m glad to be able to use them.”
Jason Jackson coming off a significant dominant 30-27 win against Jordan Mein. Best win of his Bellator career, Riding high on a two fight winning streak. Back to back wins against tough veteran fighters. Looking forward to the next fight for the Bellator Welterweight prospect.
“I learned so much from the Ed Ruth fight,” said Jackson, who lost a decision to the Bellator standout in his promotional debut in October 2019. “Even though I felt like I won the fight, that’s a lesson that came to me.”
Jason Jackson since he’s becoming the veteran killer lately can fight another UFC veteran Erick Silva. Silva fought the whose who of fighters and Jason Jackson defeating another veteran will help his Bellator career moving forward.
Larkin one of the best Welterweights in the world leaving the UFC to sign with Bellator is on a 4 fight winning streak. Interesting fight between two all around welterweights. Fight that can build Jason Jackson’s name see where he’s at against the best of the best.
Ed Ruth Rematch
Jason Jackson vs Ed Ruth happened already at Bellator 231. Jason Jackson lost by split decision but some believe including Jason himself thinks he won that close three round fight. Since the win was controversial. Schedule this fight again at the fightsphere between Bellator welterweight prospects.
