by MMAWeekly.com Staff The second ever Jackson’s MMA Series took place over the weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Albuquerque, N.M., with several fighters under Greg Jackson’s tutelage taking the main stage, including former WEC fighter Coty “Ox” Wheeler in the main event.
Dropping his last two fights in the WEC, Wheeler looked to rebound at the Jackson’s MMA series taking on veteran fighter Ray Robinson.
Wheeler was able to get the upper hand on Robinson in the second round and finish the fight with strikes at just under two minutes. The win puts Wheeler back on track towards his goal of returning to the WEC soon.
Coming off of a loss to Wilson Reis in Bellator Fighting Championships, young Jackson’s team fighter Henry Martinez got back to form with a TKO win of his own over Ruben Gonzales in the co-main event of the night.
Several other Team Jackson fighters competed on the card, while several prominent teammates made appearances at the event including the newly returned Diego Sanchez, Keith Jardine, Yoshihiro Akiyama, and Carlos Condit.
