BREAKING: Rory MacDonald Signs With Bellator


According to a report by FloCombat, former UFC title contender Rory MacDonald has signed with Bellator MMA.

MacDonald was recently removed from the official UFC rankings, sparking the possibility that he was leaving the promotion that he has called home since 2010.

The Canadian fighter lost to Stephen Thompson earlier this year, completing his UFC deal. He was also bested by Robbie Lawler last year for the UFC welterweight title in a bout many deemed “Fight of the Year.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
