Without a doubt, Aaron Jeffery’s victory over Austin Vanderford at Bellator 284 on Friday was the biggest win of his career.

The Canadians joined the fray for a short time on Friday after ninth-ranked middleweight Anthony Adams pulled out. Van der Ford is second in the division, having battled Gegard Mousasi for the title earlier this year.
