Jordan Newman Dedicates Victory to Mother – MMA Sports

Ancasville, Connecticut – Jordan Newman Entered the more motivated Bellator 255 than ever before.

In the spare card opener, Newman (3-0 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) defeated Blancobisic in the second round of TKO. Roufusport products controlled much of the fight before the finish. As he dragged Bisick to the ground in Round 2, he worked in the position of the cross and was thrilled until the referee intervened and stopped the fight.

The victory took place in Newman’s first battle since Bellator 229 in October 2019. The delay in his return to the cage was caused by several different problems. Newman revealed that the death of his mother in late 2020 was among them.

“There was a (fight) canceled here a year ago,” Newman told MMA Junkie at a post-fight press conference. “Then there was a lot of personal stuff (there). I would like to say that this fight is a homage to my mother. She passed by shortly after Thanksgiving. I am this for you. That was the purpose. “

Newman said he had no difficulty concentrating on the task at hand, despite his heartfelt participation in the fight. He thinks his mother would have wanted it that way.

“No, it wasn’t difficult,” Newman said. “That’s what I did because that was what she wanted.”

25-year-old Newman remains undefeated as a mixed martial artist. Despite his wrestling background, Newman ended the fight on strike with two consecutive looks.

Bellator 255 was held on Friday at Mohigan Sun Arena. The main card aired on Showtime. The entire event was also streamed in MMA Junkie.
