ET p. The event takes place at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
De Jesus has won three of four Bellator fights and he is riding a three-fight win streak. Back home, De Jesus was a chef, but now the only cooking he does in in the cage, teaching and training MMA students while competing on the World Stage.
Most Brazilian fighters are, naturally, Jui-Jitsu specialists, but De Jesus prefers being known as a heavy-handed striker established as an amateur boxer in Brazil before switching to professional kickboxing and then to mixed martial arts. After my Bellator last win, CES contacted me to ask if I wanted to fight for its title, and we made a deal.
My physicality and cardio were very good for that fight. Everything was right there. This is my time!
Casey has won two in a row since he suffered his only pro loss in seven pro career fights. Also fighting on the undercard is Massachusetts bantamweight Harris Bonfiglio vs. Jornell Lugo, lightweight Nick Giuletti vs.
Jesse Baughman. All fights and fighters are subject to change.
This is an all ages event. Twin River Event Center doors open at p.
