New, comments

Rory MacDonald is set to make his Bellator debut on May 19 against heavy-hitter Paul Daley, and the welterweight talents faced off Tuesday in London to promote their upcoming clash at Bellator 179.

MacDonald (18-4) enters the Bellator cage for the first time looking to bounce back from losses to Robbie Lawler and Stephen Thompson in the UFC. Prior to the defeats, the Canadian star beat Tarec Saffiedine, Tyron Woodley and Demian Maia.

Daley (39-14-2) recently scored the 29th knockout victory of his career, finishing Brennan Ward with a flying knee on Jan. 21 to improve to 4-1 under the Bellator banner. His only defeat in the promotion was against current champion Douglas Lima.
