Grappling ace Rafael Lovato Jr. just extended his undefeated record in mixed martial arts to 8-0.
Lovato took on Gerald Harris in the third match of the Bellator 198 main card.

The two touched gloves and were off. Harris ran right into one of Lovato’s knees. Rafael went for another knee, this time a flying one, and landed on his back. Despite fighting one of the most decorated grapplers in Bellator, Harris decided to get on the ground with him.
Big mistake! Lovato had Harris in his guard. He then isolated the arm, went for an armbar, and got a tap.
Looks like Dillon Danis isn’t the only one going home tonight with a first-round submission on his record.
