Bellator 283 results: Jason Jackson grinds Douglas Lima, Usman Nurmagomedov rolls

Jason Jackson played the smart game plan to choke Douglas Lima over five rounds in the Bellator 283 headliner.

Jackson earned his sixth straight win by playing it safe and taking away Lima’s standup guns with a wrestling assault that resulted in a 50-45 unanimous decision across the board. A good portion of the audience did not hear the scorecards because by the time they were read they had already poured out of the arena.

Bellator 283 took place Friday at the Emerald Queen Casino and Hotel in Tacoma, Washington. The main card from the event was broadcast live on Showtime.

Afterwards, Jackson pleaded with a booing crowd, “Lima is a legend. I don’t take anything from him. I got out of here and did what I had to do to get to the next level.” He claimed a title shot, saying a fight with interim title challenger Michael “Venom” Page sounded fitting.

A product of Kill Cliff Fight Club (formerly Sanford MMA), Jackson found his way to victory in the first by receiving a few sharp kicks to the leg for his effort. In the second round he broke through Lima’s kick and brought his opponent to the mat, who was only slightly more difficult to defeat. An upward kick briefly stunned Jackson, but he managed to stay on top and remain in control. In the third, Lima’s whizzer held him up only briefly as Jackson straightened and regained control.

In the championship rounds, it took Jackson less than 30 seconds to get Lima to the mat and keep him there. It was a smart plan for an ex-champ who had lost 1.8lbs in weight the day before, and it wasn’t a must-see on TV. But it was effective, and as Jackson said, it got him up the ladder. Lima, on the other hand, suffered their fourth straight defeat and face an uncertain future.

Musayev rolls over Outlaw

If you want to know how to do it Carpe Diemtake a cue from Tofiq Musayev.

The former RIZIN champion may have stamped his ticket to an easy title fight at short notice in Friday’s co-main event to bolster Sidney Outlaw.

Musayev knocked Outlaw off balance with two hooks, then finished the job with a right hand that referee Keith Peterson quickly brought in to save the downed fighter from further punishment. It was all over after just 25 seconds into the first lap.

With his first Bellator win, Musayev, whose promotion debut has been delayed by two rejections, steps up to the front of the line to vie with Usman Nurmagomedov for the next opportunity to take on champion Patricky Freire.

Nurmagomedov quickly taps Gonzalez

Usman Nurmagomedov is now 15-0 after showing another wrinkle in his game. Khabib Nurmagomedov’s cousin got his opponent Chris Gonzalez to overextend himself in a chase and then quickly swept him to the mat. As the American wrestler attempted to get back up, Nurmagomedov snuck into a choke and secured a tap at the 2:54 mark of the opening frame.

After that, the active, undefeated Nurmagomedov – translated from the retired, former UFC champion – claimed a title shot against champion Patricky Pitbull.

Lawrence Larkin Elbow Brings No Contest vs. Muhammed Berkhamov

Lorenz Larkin thought a sideways elbow would keep Mukhamed Berkhamov from choking him on the canvas, where he found himself early on. Unfortunately, that elbow landed right in the sweet spot for a foul, connecting the point directly to the back of the Russian’s head. When Berkhamov staggered from the punch and was unable to stand after the referee stopped the action, Larkin appeared to admit his mistake. Seconds later, with Berkhamov unable to stand or walk, Larkin’s expression changed to disgust and disappointment when a no-contest was declared at 2:52 of the opening frame.

Golm survives slams, taps Franklin

Lifting a heavyweight is hard work, as Davion Franklin found out. After twice lifting Marcelo Golm into the air and throwing him to the mat, Franklin looked at his watch in exhaustion. Golm may have had a massive gash on his right forehead, courtesy of a Franklin gunshot. But he kept coming, and when the doc at the cage let him go in the second, he exacted his revenge, chasing Franklin around the cage and landing body shots. It took him a few minutes to recover, but Franklin’s determination – and some sloppy effective altercations – put him in front to finish the second frame. Cheered on by the crowd, he ran at full speed in the third race, swinging back to land something, anything, against his more technical opponent.

Eventually, technique won the day, and Golm slammed his man down and took his back, resulting in a hard tapout from Franklin with 24 seconds left on the clock.
