Rory MacDonald signs with Bellator MMA

Former UFC welterweight title contender Rory MacDonald tested the free agency market and has found a new home in Bellator MMA.

According to a report from FloCombat, “On Tuesday evening, the UFC declined to exercise the standard matching clause included in all UFC fighter contracts after being presented with MacDonald’s offer sheet from Bellator. On Wednesday, MacDonald was removed from the UFC’s official rankings.”

MacDonald, (18-4) last competed for the UFC in June suffering a unanimous decision loss to Stephen Thompson. Before that, the Canadian fighter was TKO’d by then champion Robbie Lawler, in the fifth round of their title affair last summer.  That fight is still considered to be one of the best fights in UFC history.
