Bellator 179: Rory MacDonald On Daley Fight

Rory MacDonald

Former UFC title contender Rory MacDonald makes his long-awaited debut for Bellator this month, taking on Paul Daley at Bellator 179.

For MacDonald, the bout is a chance to confirm his standing in the welterweight division and position himself for a shot at champion Douglas Lima.

“I will get my title shot right after I go out there and knock out Daley,” MacDonald said in an interview with BJPenn.com recently. “Yea, absolutely I want to test out his wrestling and his ground game in general. With that being said, I don’t feel like it is going to be a bad thing for me if the fight stays standing. I like my chances on the feet as well.”

MacDonald and Daley will headline the card from London and airing on Spike.
