When an up and comer puts pen to paper with Bellator MMA, progression is a key component for fighters looking to make the jump and take a leap of determined faith to stick it out and reap the rich rewards in the daily grind in the world of mixed martial arts. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a primal hunter of big game looking to cannonball into Bellator MMA like a speeding bullet shot from a gun with a fully destructive impact. A professional mixed martial artist since February 2019 and representing Genisis Training Academy, Grant Neal owns an undefeated 4-0 record as a professional comprised of two decisions, one submission, and one knockout, Neal has spent the majority of his tenure as a pro-MMA fighter with Bellator MMA and has also fought for Sparta Combat League and has finished two of his four victories. Two of Neal’s wins as a professional mixed martial artist thus far have gone the distance and made it on to the scorecards with both of his finishes as a pro coming inside of three rounds.
In his MMA debut at SCL 72, he faced Juan Molina and went on to submit him via rear-naked choke in the first round. Neal defeated Jimmy Lugo via unanimous decision in his promotional debut with Bellator MMA at Bellator 233. Then in his second outing under the banner of Bellator MMA at Bellator 239, he defeated Claude Wilcox via TKO in the third round.
At Bellator 243, Neal defeated Hamza Salim via unanimous decision. The win earned Neal the second decision victory of his professional career along with his third win in a row with Bellator MMA. An emerging prospect at 4-0 who can deal the cards any way he chooses, this triple threat has plenty of bang for the price of admission!
