MacDonald Will Need Medical Clearance For Bellator 222

Even though Rory MacDonald has moved on to the semi-finals of the Bellator welterweight world grand prix, he may not be cleared to walk into the cage against Neiman Gracie.

The California State Athletic Commission released the event’s finalized medical suspension report to MMA Fighting on Monday, with the current welterweight champion given a 180 day suspension.

MacDonald fought to a majority draw against Jon Fitch in the main event of Bellator 220, and will need medical clearance for a potential right later epicondyle injury.

Joining MacDonald on the injured list for nearly six months were: Veta Arteaga (left knee), Adam Piccolotti (nasal and left orbital fractures), Liam McGeary (fractured jaw), and Jordan Williams (fractured nose).
