Bellator MMA's only event in July, Bellator 283, went into full swing on Friday at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash. The main event was the fight between the former Bellator welterweight champion Douglas Lima and the fourth-ranked welterweight Jason Jackson.

Lima was riding a three-fight losing skid, with his most recent outing a split decision loss to Michael Page at Bellator 267 in October of last year. Jackson, on the other hand, was riding a five-fight winning streak with a decision victory at Bellator 260 in his most recent bout.

Jackson vs. Lima highlights:

Lima faces an impressive Jackson who comes off the back of recent wins over Neiman Gracie and Paul Daley.

After that, the land dominated for Jackson.

In round 2, Jackson scored another takedown. Lima briefly showed signs of life as he connected with a stunning upkick on Jackson, who survived and stayed on top.

In round 3, Jackson took Lima down again. Lima eventually reversed the position – only for it to backfire. Lima tries to go back to his leg kick, but Jackson takes him down again.

By round 4, Jackson was cutting his grip on Lima, cutting him above the eye as he seemed to accept Jackson's success and easily maintained top position.

By round 5, it was clear where the fight was going and what the decision was going to be. Jackson took Lima down immediately and clocked out.

After the end of the fight, As everyone knew and expected, Jackson took the decision via three comprehensive scorecards that all read 50-45.
