Following his Bellator 210 win, Jon Salter spoke with MMA Junkie about breaking into the Bellator middleweight title picture following his latest win…

“I think I should’ve been the guy to get the title shot for quite some time, and then Rafael comes in, and that guy’s just a monster. I think we had a great fight. I think it was back and forth, and he got the better of me in that third round. I’m glad he’s getting that title shot because it’s well deserved. But I think after he gets that title shot, I think I’m right there. I probably need to get one more win coming back from that loss, but I’m right there in the top of the division. I think there’s three or four of us right there that are kind of teetering together. I’ve got stuff in mind, but most of the top guys in the division have fights lined up right now. You’ve got the titlte fight lined up, you’ve got Carvalho and Machida lined up. I’m just going to get through Christmas, enjoy myself, and at the beginning of the year really start to look at what makes sense.”
