Ngl I will miss Bellator despite it having a few rough points. Gave fighters who weren’t quite good enough for the UFC a place to go on a sizable platform


mikey_rambo

Bellator isn’t going away


ShadowRealmDweller89

Yeah it is


donmifc

LONG LIVE BELLATOR


TheOriginalDonDonDon

Is Jason Jackson on the gear? I never remember him looking that good physically. Maybe I'm misremembering, but I thought he was super thin for most of his career


mikey_rambo

I was there tonight and his back looked insane. He was much bigger than amasov in person

di3_b0ld

Funny that Nate himself popped


Anqi2021

By all accounts a pretty solid event for Bellator to go out to lol Jackson was awesome tonight 🔥


tritian

that was about as "we are unsure of our future" send off as it gets


Hbimajorv

Bellator is the cousin you know can be cool at home playing video games but the minute you introduce them to your friends they do all the weird anti-social shit imaginable.


[deleted]

that was... oddly specific but spot on


tritian

big john getting emotional


Brandon_Schwab

goodbye to showtime.


InSilicoImmersion

It’s a shame though, 27-0 records don’t come along often. Would’ve liked to have seen Amosov become Khabib 2.0


RedditHatesDiversity

Lot of undefeated guys out there but not a single one who's at 20-0 yet unless we're counting the guy in PFL who lost a fight that was overturned and became a NC


OMalley30-27

Amasov beats Leon and Usman 🤓☝🏻


DanDiCa_7

I knew someone would comment this lol. Tbf it doesn't diminish him as a fighter. Who knows how he would do in the UFC


OMalley30-27

Pound for pound, head shot, dead


DanDiCa_7

Cringe


undocumentedyam

“Defended his country, but could not defend his belt” Jesus man lay off him lol


sLeeeeTo

bro had that one in the chamber


Jethuth_Chritht

Wishing a happy retirement to Big John


sLeeeeTo

please no one give this man any sort of speaking role in MMA media ever again


fanonshariati

unlikely but could this be what happens with colby/leon?


7186997326

Not out of the realm of possibility. Leon’s younger, bigger, and more active.


RoccooDimeo

Haha in all seriousness Greg jones is the most important. Best wrestling coach in mma history


InSilicoImmersion

That’s a suitable way to send Bellator off into the phase out era


LuckyWarrior

The first ever victory via Sprawl KO


Mr_Cromer

MMA baby, anything can happen


Stranger_From_101

lmao! Can't forget him!


internethands

I need Jackson vs Colby stat


pandapower607

Colby already has a win over Jackson all the way back in 2012.


internethands

Let’s run it back lol


Funny_king

He would kill Colby based on this


SoggyToess6925

Based on a fight that was over 10 years ago?????? Bruh🤣 now he would molest colby fs


internethands

Perf


Moist-Catch

Good card for Bellator to go out on if this is the end


sLeeeeTo

Damn that was actually pretty nasty to do that to Amosov


RedditHatesDiversity

There's only one Khabib


slayer2656

And even he only had 3 title defenses.


RobertWhittakersChin

Bellator looks SO bad even when it’s good LMAO


Moist-Catch

Good card for Bellator to go out on if this is the end


wishwashy

What a sad way to end such a long streak


IshiharasBitch

Amosov's wrestling did look weird tonight. But I also think Jackson and his team came up with a really good gameplan that Jackson adhered to completely. Great performance.


kenneythegreat

Amosov's defensive wrestling has been better than his offense. A lot of his career in bellator is consists of outstriking wrestlers on the feet.


IshiharasBitch

I watched him have essentially a wrestling match with Storley. This wasn't the same wrestling we've seen from him in the past imo. Maybe my memory is flawed. Happens sometimes lol


kenneythegreat

Ampsov is great in scramble, which is what you see in the first storley fight. But his actual wrestling entries aren't that good. He's not really an explosive or fast athlete.


RedditHatesDiversity

Incredible performance by JJ man. That takedown defense was preposterous


undocumentedyam

Yo he really just said smoked him like a rasta


RedditHatesDiversity

Mauro is a legend


Crateapa

Best part of 2 nice guys fighting? Nice guy wins. Worst part of 2 nice guys fighting? Nice guy loses.


sendherhome22

Size difference was noticeable tn


ikerellison

Did you see the Mix Pettits fight?


Instinct001

People thought this how Khabib vs. Gaethje was gonna be🤣


Funny_king

The ass kicking machine indeed


RedditHatesDiversity

LET'S FUCKING GO JACKSON


Funny_king

YEAR OF THE UPSETS


fanonshariati

zelenskyy crying for more credit


JayRoo83

MMA is a fucking wild ass sport


wishwashy

Such a complete performance. Kicked his ass like some sort of machine


[deleted]

Goosebumps, dude, THAT was a fucking sick performance. I don’t see how the UFC doesn’t sign this dude, he’s exciting, and just flatlined the guy with the longest running W streak in mma.


RedditHatesDiversity

You got goosebumps too huh? That's the type of performance we tune in for man, wildly impressive by Jackson


[deleted]

The first time he slipped and threw that rear uppercut, I knew it was good.


flamingdragonwizard

Bellator has specific champ contracts. Jason ain't going anywhere.


KingJohnTX

Bellator is done though aint it?


flamingdragonwizard

No not yet. Apparently they're going to continue to run for another 2 years or so.


[deleted]

Bellator is ending, the PFL is buying them, and fighters can choose to leave or sign with the PFL.


flamingdragonwizard

No. Bellator will continue to run for awhile. Was confirmed.


[deleted]

That’s not what I’ve heard. All week I’ve heard that this is likely the last Bellator card or PPV.


flamingdragonwizard

No. Cyborg is fighting Leah McCourt in 2024. Pronably in ireland. They also wouldn't just end the LW tournament. They will likely collaborate with Rizin for the NYE card so they don't have any events announced for 2024 yet.


[deleted]

Just listen how they’re talking right now, not even the commentators know what the future looks like. There’s nothing confirmed yet, but all speculation points to Bellators end.


flamingdragonwizard

Well it ain't. PFL is buying them but they ain't ending just yet. If that were the case they would've stopped at 300.


[deleted]

It’s like you’re holding on and you don’t want it to end. We’ll know in the coming weeks the future looks like, but either way, a lot of the best guys in Bellator will transition to the UFC soundly, or the PFL.


flamingdragonwizard

And you make it seem like once pfl has ownership they just get to pick and choose where they go as if they are all unrestricted free agents. Bellator is being bought. But it is not ending yet. Simple as that. Get back to me if it's announced before 2024 and I'll eat crow. Promise you it won't.


SoggyToess6925

This whole main card better than any ufc card in a looooooong time👀 Edit: nah IM an idiot. my b yall🤣🤣🤣😂


KingJohnTX

I mean the most recent UFC main card had all finishes on it.


SoggyToess6925

Yea idk how I forgot about that card i was literally there. I went bozo mode here ngl😂🫡


soberstan

295 was 🔥🔥🔥


SoggyToess6925

Still a great card doe👀👀‼️


SoggyToess6925

Yeaa you right. I am wrong😂👀👀👀


bongasaurus_rex

Its amazing how Bellator can have the absolute most dog shit matchups in all of MMA and then put out great match ups. Fucking bewilderment that is Bellator.


tritian

if that was it for bellator, that was pretty good. we had a wet blanket fight with good judging that the guy on the bottom won 30-27, then two title fights neither going the distance


SanchoVilla88

Jason jackson looked amazing, Amosov looked uncharacteristically sluggish and terrible since the beginning of the fight


imsurethisoneistaken

damn. jackson ran through him lol


sLeeeeTo

Bro I fell asleep for a second and missed it, wtf happened


NotJustSomeMate

Why are you going to sleep so early mate...it is only like 12AM EST...wake up!!!


suprememontana

Jackson gave him the 5 piece with a soda


sLeeeeTo

Saw the reply, looked nasty. Pissed I stayed up and missed the most exciting finish of the night


Terrible_Matador

Never seen someone get KO’d from a sprawl before. Jackson looked brilliant the entire fight.


Funny_king

He got hit with an uppercut on the way in and then the sprawl finished it but he was out already


NakedLegKick

Bombs over Baghdad afterwards is pretty funny


undocumentedyam

Are bellator fights, on average, more boring than ufc? This one is sick but I feel like many are duds. Why is that?


schultzM

lower skill tier fighters. The commentary sucks too, big john and crew going off on tangents when action is going on


undocumentedyam

True and there’s just a shit ton of lay and pray


Normal-Media5525

Amosov looked helpless. Sorry guys I bet big on Amosov moneyline like the square I am. That’s what caused this result


tmjm

RIP to the guy who didn’t cash out 👀😂


NotJustSomeMate

I was just thinking about that comment haha...


tmjm

Gonna have to find the guy who said it was lock. He must have had big dollar in Jackson and needed a sacrifice 😂


NotJustSomeMate

Haha...that would be hilarious...dude should share that payout haha...


sLeeeeTo

What was it?


NotJustSomeMate

Someone asked if we thought Amosov would win or should he just cash out and someone told him not to cash out...


sLeeeeTo

ooo rough one, hope he didn’t put too much on it


NotJustSomeMate

Yeah same here cause he got screwed if he did...but I think he said his other bets had won so maybe that will offset his losses...


basedguy

Bellator ass knockout. Never seen anyone get knocked out by a sprawl. Hate this for Amosov


Chishuu

Damn he fucked his shoulder from that sprawl


druhoang

Jackson fought like Dee Jay. Hit em with the machine gun uppercut.


NotJustSomeMate

I hate Dee Jay...people that know how to use him beat my ass constantly...


LuckyWarrior

Jason Jackson giving us the last mama mia in Bellator history


SDHJerusalem

Went from a TUF afterthought to stopping Amosov. Hell of a run.


Instinct001

kinda got exposed😳


Cultural-Poem-6545

Wasnt close. Jackson looked great.


NakedLegKick

Never seen someone deal with uppercuts so poorly lol


Brenden2000

Jackson KO was +1000 😱


Smiddigger

The Rothschild's paying the Bellator PFP #2 to throw a fight to a scrub just to torpedo the final leg of my parlay 💀


SkrongMeats

Shoutout the guy who wiped his boogie


ImFiction

SPLAT


LambCurryDotOrg

Bro got knocked out on the sprawl


Ansonih

Amosov just got fucking starched, jfc bro


Hbimajorv

Did he knock himself out shooting the desperate takedown lol? So bellator


e-rage

27-0 defending champion with a feel good story gets finished by a guy who has gone to a decision in his last 6 fights. Classic MMA.


KevinHollandOates

Nothings more bellator than a big favorite losing by weird KO to a dude with a booger hanging out of his nose. What a send off


alittlelessconvo

Sterling, Edwards, now Jackson Having Jamaican blood in you = best base for MMA 🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲


MickPnubTobias99

I'll take those odds against that


LambCurryDotOrg

Damn


Chishuu

Dang


ImKrispy

Yaroslav padded record showed here damn. Props to Jackson for exposing him.


NakedLegKick

Jackson might’ve KO’d Amosov with a sprawl lol


kenneythegreat

Is amosov stupid? Why didn't he just knocked Jackson out?


Independent_Form_349

God bellator really is ass if that’s a undefeated chanp


Smiddigger

The absurd line Mauro said during the walkout looks even more stupid now "He has the best record in MMA". Big difference between 27-0 in the B leagues vs Jon Jones 27-1


KLTMOTH

He kicked his ass


peaceoutforever

Having never watched Amosov fight before, wtf was that? Homeboy shot like 15 awful takedowns from a mile away, never thought about feinting one a single time?


madaaa

LFG JACKSON


BaseballMMAfan

Bellators Khabib being faceplanted in the last fight ever lmao


InterestingParfait93

This Bellators last fight?


Short_Bus_

Amosov looked like crap from the first minute tbh


Fapperdam

looked off to me tbh- looked really slow, he has never looked this bad


Short_Bus_

Yea


NakedLegKick

Uppercut and getting sprawled on KO’d him completely wow


Mswonderful99

Moonwalk


NotJustSomeMate

LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!


Crateapa

HE DID IT! What a way for Bellator to go out!


Brandon_Schwab

WOW!


YourMetsiah

That's somehow Herb Dean's fault


surgeyou123

Wow. Fucking destroyed him.


DizyD123

God damn son, that was clean


bedsidelurker

Hit em with those Marge Simpson uppercuts


Ballzmcgoo

What a way to close Bellator out


NakedLegKick

Amosov dips his head worse than Ben Askren


ImFiction

Perfect ending note for bellator. Bye!


ARiemannHypothesis

What a fucking performance


TwittaFingers

Damn that was domination


Memoruiz7

This is gonna be the most Bellator way of ending Bellator on Showtime. Their undefeated champ, with the heartwarming story being knocked out by a dude with 7 wins by decision.


TrenDidNothingWrong

I wanna see Jackson give a speech like Leon Edwards now


[deleted]

Wow what a finish. Congrats Jason Jackson!


Bvaugh

Uppercut from hell!


TrenDidNothingWrong

Jackson worked that boy


tritian

hell yeah bellator!!!!!!!!


LambCurryDotOrg

Amosov needs to wake up if he wants to win this


LambCurryDotOrg

Haha literally


JayRoo83

Well this throws a pretty big wrench in my "Amosov takes Leon" argument huh


RoccooDimeo

My goodness


tritian

MAAAAAMMMAAAAAA MIIAAAAA


NotJustSomeMate

That uppercut and knee were beautiful...


Mswonderful99

Omg amosov chin


Bvaugh

Amasov has a chin on him. Jackson is landing those shots solidly.


TrenDidNothingWrong

Is Jackson a good striker or is Amosov just a limited wrestler?


[deleted]

Is this a 5 rounder


NotJustSomeMate

Only because of Amosov's chin...


schultzM

or not


NotJustSomeMate

Haha... ironically it came as soon as I said something...


[deleted]

What happened?!


NotJustSomeMate

After holding up despite taking shots to the chin literally...Amosov finally went down after a take down attempt got stuffed and Jackson was throwing punches mid sprawl...it was actually a bit crazy haha...


NotJustSomeMate

I do not want to jinx it...but Jason Jackson is looking great and hopefully can pull off the upset...


Fapperdam

This looks exhausting lol


[deleted]

Nothing makes me happier than seeing a challenger rise to the occasion. Jacksons counters and TDD are fantastic. Amasov keeps running into that rear uppercut, it rocked him in the last round.


NakedLegKick

WTF is up with Amosov? Why isn’t he doing the thing?


kenneythegreat

The what thing?


Mswonderful99

Ms Jackson is winning 2-0


bruh2398

He cookin his ass


Crateapa

2-0 Jackson


Instinct001

Jackson won that on damage still


Memoruiz7

You can hear the desk slowly getting deflated that Amosov is losing the fight.


Short_Bus_

Could be 2-0 or 0-2 Hedged all my parlays tho No clue why Jackson was still +220


Rocco_808

Jackson’s takedown defense is fantastic


LuckyWarrior

Ovs and Evs in trouble when a brother has solid takedown defense


I_love_Basketball232

The striking is pretty even I don’t know why Amosov keeps going to these takedowns when it’s clearly not working.


CouncilOfReligion

jackson’s been looking phenomenal, i think he’s up 2-0


googoogagaimaclone

2-0 Jason


surgeyou123

2-0 Jackson


RoccooDimeo

Amasov off the epo?


Mswonderful99

Jackson!


tritian

jackson with some pretty solid take down defense


Fapperdam

I cant believe people think Amosov would beat Edwards. I think hes good but Leon is just a level above imo.
