Bellator 192 is the next item on our Bellator menu, and though it features some tasty appetizers – like the Quinton Jackson versus Chael Sonnen bout, which opens the heavyweight tournament – the main course is why we’re tuning in.
Welterweight king Douglas Lima has pretty much run through everyone on the organization’s roster, so promoter Scott Coker has worked his magic and brought in some outside talent. Namely, top-ranked UFC welterweight contender Rory MacDonald.
MacDonald earned his shot at the belt by taking out Paul Daley in his Bellator debut, so really, this isn’t so much about a UFC fighter taking out a
Bellator fighter. It’s more about one of the best 170 pounders in the world facing another one of the best 170 pounders in the world.
It should be a damn good fight. And in case you need reminding how much of a badass Lima is, here he is in action.
