Jaylon Bates Bellator 251 Pre-Fight Interview

Check out what he had to say to MyMMANews and the media in attendance above.

Bellator 251 will take place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. The card airs live on CBS Sports Network.

Bellator has been active recently when it comes to scooping up highly-touted prospects quickly. They did just that when they signed undefeated amateur Jaylon Bates to start his professional career with the promotion. He’ll be getting in the cage fairly quickly after signing the contract back on Sept. 29,

Bates was 9-0 in his amateur career with four submissions and three knockouts. He has trained under UFC veteran Evan Dunham on his way up and has also spent time at American Top Team Portland and Portland City Boxing.
