LOS ANGELES – Last Friday, Jason Jackson (16-4) showcased a wrestling masterclass against former BELLATOR MMA champion Douglas Lima (32-11) in a five-round main event battle.
Jackson’s ability to subdue Lima’s offense earned him a shutout unanimous decision victory and with the win, Jackson now moves one step closer to a title shot and cements his status as the No. 3-ranked contender in the division, while Lima drops to the No. 4 spot.
There was also a huge shake up to the lightweight divisional rankings, as the undefeated Usman Nurmagomedov (15-0) climbs to No. 1 in the rankings with a first-round guillotine submission victory over Chris Gonzalez (7-2), while former RIZIN champion Tofiq Musayev (19-4) blasted his way into the No. 2 spot in his promotional debut by knocking out former number one contender and designated title challenger Sidney Outlaw (16-5) in just under 30 seconds.
The undefeated Dalton Rosta (7-0) earned a TKO victory against three-time NCAA D-II wrestling champion Romero Cotton (6-1) to put an end to their long-awaited grudge match, jumping two spots to No. 6 in the middleweight rankings. Human highlight-reel Roman Faraldo (8-0) makes his debut on the official BELLATOR Rankings at No. 10 in the welterweight rankings after keeping his career-long 100% KO streak intact with a devastating first-round finish against Luis Iniguez (5-2).
