Bellator 199's Javy Ayala is more than a gatekeeper

5/4/2018


Javy Ayala (10-6) has been tapped a lot lately for fights in the heavyweight division and he has been called upon again to face Cheick Kongo (27-10-2) at Bellator 199. While he gets tapped to face a lot of big names in the division a lot lately, he is by no means a gatekeeper for it. His name was mentioned once as an alternate for the Heavyweight World Grand Prix, but even though it did not come up again Ayala is more than ready to get past Kongo and step in if anyone needs replacing.

The plan is to knock him out. That’s always my plan.
— Javy "Eye Candy" Ayala

If you have not heard of Javy "Eye Candy" Ayala before Bellator 199 you likely will know the name by the end of the year.
