John Salter had to bow out of his fight this Saturday due to injury, Gerald Harris will fill in.
Our favorite man-slamming stand-up comedian is back in action this Saturday night, stepping up on five days notice to fill in for injured John Salter. Gerald Harris will be taking on undefeated Rafael Lovato Jr. Harris enters this fight having won 9 of his last 10 including his four in a row. Personally, I am looking forward to this fight more than the original. The fight takes place on the main card this Saturday night on Paramount Network.
Gerald Harris is known for his highlight reel slams over David Branch and Aaron Cobb. Both were bananas and landed him on Sportscenter. He’s not a one-trick pony though. He has a complete game and has a solid base in wrestling. He can also hurt you on the feet. Gerald will prove a difficult test for Lovato who is in the infancy of his MMA career.
Below you’ll find a video of his slam on David Branch as it appeared on SportsCenter’s Top Ten Plays. It’s an absolute doozy,
Bellator 198 airs live this Saturday night. The lineup can be seen here.
