Lima vs. MacDonald Set for January
Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima will defend this title this coming January at Bellator 191 against Rory MacDonald.
After jumping ship to Bellator, following a UFC run that saw him go 9-4 and fall just short of the UFC Welterweight Championship, MacDonald staked his claim for Bellator’s title by defeating Paul Daley back in May at Bellator 179.
Lima has only twice in his last 19 fights and is currently on a three-fight win streak. Lima won the Bellator championship in November 2016 at Bellator 164. defeating Andrey Koreshkov. Lima retained the title back in June at Bellator NYC against Lorenz Larkin.
