Bellator MMA has booked its first ever champ vs. champ fight. Newly crowned middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi, who beat Rafael Carvalho by first round TKO for the title will take on Bellator welterweight champion Rory MacDonald on September 29th.
Rory MacDonald, who is Bellator’s biggest free-agent signing, debuted in spectacular fashion when he tapped out Paul Daley with a rear-naked choke. He topped that with a championship decision win against then champ Douglas Lima in a close and excellent fight.
I am stoked for this fight! Bellator is finally putting together the best fight possible for themselves and the fans. The hardest part is going to be waiting until September for this.
