RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Jones defeated Umer Kayani via Submission (rear-naked choke) at 4:35 of Round 1 at Bellator 179 on Friday in London.
Jones caught a pretty nasty low blow early in this fight. After a break to recover, he immediately closed the distance and scored a takedown. From there, he spent most of the rest of the round softening up Kayani with short punches and pressure. Late in the round, he took the back and finished via rear-naked choke. As a BAMMA regular, Jones will probably stick with that promotion. He will likely end up in another featured preliminary spot when Bellator returns to the U.K.
