If you want for an inspiring story then you need look no further than Bellator’s Bryan Baker who emerged victorious against the veteran Jeremy Horn last night at the promotion’s 30th event.
Baker lost out in the final of season two’s middleweight tournament final, but what most people didn’t know at the time was that he had been diagnosed with Lukemia before the tournament had even began.
The fact that he’s even continuing to compete at all is remarkable, but to claim a victory over a well established fighter like Horn in his latest fight is a testament to his heart and determination to succeed against the odds.
