Dalton Rosta Betting Preview

Rosta is currently undefeated through eight professional fights and is seeking another. His most recent victory was a unanimous decision against Anthony Adams back in December of last year.

His fighting resume shows that eight of his victories consist of four knockouts and four decisions. Two of his eight wins have resulted in a first round finish.

"Hercules” has yet to lose a battle, in both amateur and professional levels. Through all eight of his professional fights, they have been with Bellator, so fans should know what to expect here.

Due to his rising success, he is currently ranked as the 68th best middleweight fighter in the world. Another win here would definitely boost his resume and allow him to climb even higher.

Aaron Jeffrey Betting Preview

Jeffrey is looking to get back on track from his recent fight, which was a unanimous decision defeat against John Salter back in March of this year. This loss snapped his previous three fight winning streak dating back to early last year.

His fighting resume shows that he has 13 wins that consist of nine knockouts, one submission, and three decisions. Three of his 13 wins have resulted in a first round finish and three of his four losses have come by decision.

He has had some mixed results in various fighting leagues so far in his career, as he has gone 2-1 in Bellator, 0-2 in Dana White’s Contender Series, and 1-0 in the Legacy Fighting Alliance. However, there are a handful of bouts on his resume that were arguably tougher and he succeeded in.

Jeffrey is currently ranked as the 56th best middleweight fighter in the world. This will be a great opportunity if he can finish this fight early and continue moving up the ranks.
