Ground slicing and pound bends took place on the preliminary part of the event. Law is starting to establish himself as a real threat at 145 pounds and is looking to continue climbing the ranks of the featherweight division within Bellator.
Cody Law is now 5-0 as a professional mixed martial artist. He has an eighty percent finish rate so far as a professional.
His entire journey as a pro-MMA fighter took place under this Bellator MMA banner. Law debuted with the promotion to the Bellator 250 in October 2020. He finished Orlando Ortega in that first effort via the first round via D’Arce Choke.
Cody Law has a ten-fight winning streak that he’s now leading since his amateur MMA endeavors.
For Colton Hamm, that readjusts his professional mixed martial arts record to four wins against four losses. The young warrior did not achieve the desired result on his first combat foray into the Bellator MMA.
The American Top Team product entered the sport after a decorated race as a wrestler. He used the intense mindset of the sport and used that emboldened work ethic to quickly bolster his skills in other facets of the mixed martial arts game.
I spoke with Law virtually at the post-event press conference. The excerpt from our interaction is below.
It embraces the ethics of grinding his wrestling base and how this has enabled accelerated skill growth with hitting and submitting.
âI mean, I think wrestling is the best foundation to have. I’m just used to tough times. A wrestling season is only 6.7.8 months of miserably difficult times. So everything else is pretty easy and pretty fun.
