A “Dream Come True:” Rafael Lovato Jr. Wins Bellator Title

Jujitsu great Rafael Lovato Jr. can add yet another major title to his serious resume this weekend. Lovato defeated Gegard Mousasi for the Bellator middleweight title winning by a majority decision in London.

The win was rooted largely in Lovato’s dominant ground game, for which Mousasi had zero answers. Mousasi landed strikes, including one nasty elbow early on and a hail of mounted punches during the final round, but otherwise found himself being taken down again and again, unable to advance.
