It was considered a true superfight for Bellator at the time. Rory MacDonald looked to become a two-division champion when the then-Bellator Welterweight Champion faced Gegard Mousasi for the latter’s Middleweight Title. It ended up being Mousasi’s time to shine, as he would not let Rory breath for two rounds. He ended up winning the fight via TKO.
