The “Maori Child” is one in all the most extremely touted featherweight prospects in the game nowadays. At simplest 24 years extinct, Wilson has had all nonetheless one fight in Bellator, and has but to style defeat. His final efficiency, arguably his most spectacular, used to be in opposition to Pedro Carvalho whom he done inside of 2 rounds.
All the plan thru the Ty-wan Claxton lead up in July of 2020, JayJay Wilson disregarded weight by nearly 2lbs. Commission head Mike Mazzuli had threatened Wilson that he also can derive to pass up in weight very soon. A 365 days later, Wilson disregarded weight again, this time by double the quantity he disregarded on the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.
In accordance to MMA Junkie’s Nolan King, Adam Borics will likely be paid in full, and the co-necessary tournament of the card is most definitely no longer taking space after the necessary omit. Borics is coming off of a convincing steal over Jeremy Kennedy from earlier this 365 days. His lone career loss is to frail bantamweight champion, Darrion Caldwell.
It’s miles unclear at the present if JayJay Wilson will indeed pass up in weight to 155lbs for his subsequent look. With missing weight for the third time in 4 opportunities, and the latter being the steepest omit, it’s exhausting to imagine we’re going to have the option to query Wilson at 145 again in the shut to future.
