Bellator 283: Douglas Lima vs. Jason Jackson live results.
Bellator 283 lost its originally planned championship main event and now has a headliner that failed to make weight, but the show does still have fighters that are worth keeping an eye on.
Bellator 283 will feature former welterweight champion Douglas Lima in the main event as he takes on Jason Jackson, who aims to score the next available shot at the belt. Bellator 283 was originally to feature Patricky “Pitbull” Freire defending the Bellator lightweight strap against Sidney Outlaw before Freire pulled out with an injury.
Lima is in major need of a win after dropping three straight to Gegard Mousasi (in a challenge for the Bellator middleweight title), Yaroslav Amosov (losing the welterweight title) and Michael “Venom” Page. Lima also missed weight for this fight, coming in 1.8 pounds over the non-title welterweight limit.
Jackson has won five straight and eight of his last nine, most recently defeating Paul Daley at Bellator 260 last year.
Outlaw now faces Tofiq Musayev in the Bellator 283 co-main event.
Outlaw has won three of his four Bellator fights, with his only loss coming to current UFC star Michael Chandler. Outlaw most recently fought at Bellator 261, submitting Myles Jury.
Musayev makes his Bellator debut here. He lost the inaugural RIZIN lightweight title fight last year but gained a name for himself at the end of 2019 when he won the RIZIN Lightweight Grand Prix, last defeating Freire, the current Bellator lightweight champ, in the final.
