Rory MacDonald

Last weekend, Bellator MMA returned to our screens with one of its biggest cards to date in Bellator 192. One of the highlights of this card occurred in the co-main event, when former UFC welterweight title challenger Rory MacDonald bested Douglas Lima in a five-round war, capturing the Bellator welterweight belt in the process.

While Rory MacDonald is now the Bellator welterweight champ, he’s unfortunately facing a lengthy stint on the sidelines as the result of the leg injury he sustained mid-fight. Several other fighters on the Bellator 192 bill also received lengthy suspensions.
