Rory MacDonald, Gegard Mousasi

Gegard Mousasi picked up his first ever Bellator middleweight title defense this evening in San Jose, defeating Rory MacDonald via second-round TKO in the Bellator 206 main event.

Mousasi was able to pick “The Red King” apart with a nasty jab for the opening five minutes of the contest.

In round two Mousasi was able to get the fight to the floor where he began raining down some nasty ground and pound on the current Bellator welterweight title holder Rory MacDonald.

Gegard Mousasi would eventually move to half guard before quickly transitioning to full mount. Once there, “The Dreamcatcher” unloaded a plethora of hard elbows that had MacDonald in all sorts of trouble. After a taking a long hard look at the damage Rory was enduring, the referee stepped in and mercifully called a stop to the one-sided contest. (Watch the finish here)
