Who Won the Bellator 282 Match?
The match overall was epic! The competition was neck-to-neck, but Johnny Eblen took the title home. Although Mousasi is a two-time Bellator Middleweight Champion, he missed it this time. Whereas Eblen reigned many brutal punches, while some were a miss, others were a hit. Mousasi also comes through with his jabs and leg kicks. But he was outsmarted in the takedown!
Eblen grows stronger as the game progresses, as the reigning champion should. After all the five-round, the score remained 50-45, as I said, a very close call! Following this win, Eblen is now the number one Bellator champion with zero losses so far.
