Professional MMA fighter Rick “Boomer” Reger recently made his Bellator debut May 14th at the SAP center in San Jose, Ca

Reger recently signed a multi-fight contract with Bellator MMA, opened up about the outcome of his debut fight:

“You know, I took this fight on short notice, 14 days to be exact. It was a great opportunity for me against a very tough opponent.” Andre Fiahlo is an undefeated Bellator vetern who is a contender for a title shot. I knew this going in, but it was an opportunity that I could not pass up. You only get better fighting the best. He will no doubt have the belt one day soon.

By stepping up, not only did Reger make this fight possible, he went in and fought blow for blow until the end by TKO. He stood his ground, true to his word and made the fight entertaining as he had promised. No quitting, no retreating from Reger. He definiltley has a chin on him. He is one tough dude and kept getting up to fight until the end.

Although it’s not the outcome Reger and his camp wanted, he says he is proud to compete at the highest level in his sport and he is grateful to Bellator MMA for the amazing opportunity they have given him. He is also grateful for all of the love and support he has recieved from his fans. He will be back in the cage again soon fighting his next fight for Bellator MMA.
