Early last month Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans revealed that her hunky beau Nathan Griffith would be returning to the ring, and his first fight was this Saturday in Havelock, North Carolina as part of the Primus III amateur mixed martial arts competition.

Nathan, who weighed in at 170 pounds, fought Muhieddin “Draco” Alkhatib, who weighed in at 172 pounds, in a three-round bout. Draco had a 2-1 record coming in while Nathan, due to his lengthy departure from the sport, had no official record.

Jenelle made the trip up to see the fight and posted the photo of Nathan and Draco above from the weigh-in before excitedly tweeting:

Unfortunately for Jenelle (and more importantly Nathan), the well-wishes weren’t enough as Nathan was defeated by Draco in the bout. But, Nathan did manage to last all three rounds and lost due to a unanimous decision by the judges.

Here’s a photo posted on Draco’s Facebook page after the decision was announced in which you can see a dejected Nathan in the background:

Here is the entire fight in three videos — one for each round:




“Yes, Nathan did not win the fight but the decision was very close!” Jenelle tweeted shortly after the match. “He put up a fantastic fight and I couldn’t be more proud of him,” she added. Then, in response to folks posting negative things about Nathan and chiding him for his loss, Jenelle tweeted, “Let’s see yu last 3 rounds 5 mins each being plastered… Don’t think so! Love u gorgeous. Chin up! ❤️” She then reminded everyone, “Oh and btw… He only trained 2 months. He’s a fast learner.”

He may be a fast learner, but Nathan appears to not be a fast healer because Jenelle posted a photo earlier today of him captioned, “Rocking those Zombie Headphones lol” in which it appears that he’s still sporting a black eye:

There’s no word yet when or if Nathan will be getting back into the ring.

    Does she realize that “being plastered” means to be drunk? What a moron.

  • SimplyMimi

    Ok, if she means “being plastered” as in drunk, she’s a flipping idiot! Fighters are NOT allowed to drunk 12 hours prior to a fight. He could be banned from fighting and even fined. Not like she cares though.

  • Bree Morey

    I find it interesting that someone who has had domestic violence charges against pretty much every one of her ex’s is encouraging fighting, controlled environment or not. Someone with Jenelle’s erratic temperament and bull shit attitude should not be dating someone who knows how to fight lol

    • Theron

      Looking at his record, it doesn’t appear he really does know how lol

  • frontdoormom

    Starcasm! I hate this new disqus set up! :(((

    Jenelle must be on crack. Nathan did not put up a good fight. She must not even watch MMA at all. He was HORRIBLE. It looked as though someone plucked him off of the street and threw him into the ring. He is a dumbbell douchebag. He may work out, but he has no talent in the ring. His muscles are useless and you can tell he has not trained or even sparred because there would be some muscle memory going on. He was pathetic I couldn’t even watch all of it and I love MMA. That suplex onto his head…wow! Nathan looked like an idiot and he thinks this sport is a joke. You can’t just go into a fight and even have a tiny chance of winning. These people train for ages and he just comes in there, 2 months of gently batting a bag, thinking he can win. Pathetic. Ugh. Can’t stand either one of them.

  • kaja

    now he looks like her typical choice of man.
