Tyrell Fortune 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.
Fortune (8-1, 1NC) will look to get back to winnings ways at the November 5 event. He suffered his first defeat as a professional back in February, when the surging Tim Johnson knocked him out in the first round. The wrestling standout returned in September, fighting UFC vet Jack May. However, the bout ended in a No Contest following an accidental low blow.
Now he has a chance to right the ship against a rare fighter from Suriname, Said Sowma. Sowma is a well-rounded fighter on paper, but Fortune’s knockout power may prove too much for him.
