Much of the spotlight for Bellator 198 will be squarely fixed on the headliner between Fedor Emelianenko and Frank Mir, but the card will also feature the fast rising, Rafael Lovato Jr.
Lovato Jr. isn’t your typical prospect, due to the fact he’s 34. But, the multi-time, jiu-jitsu champ, in gi and no-gi, has been turning heads since he moved into pro MMA back in 2014.
Since then, Lovato Jr. has gone 7-0, and that includes three wins with Bellator. Tonight the middleweight will take on Gerald Harris, who was a late replacement for John Salter.
