UFC On Fox 8

Rory MacDonald Vs Jake Ellenberger
Rory MacDonald Via Decision —————————————
This weekend is going to be glorious for fight fans. Not only do we have the sensational UFC 220, headlined by one of the best Heavyweight fights of all time. We also have an incredible Bellator card the same night! The card is stacked and includes some really fascinating fights. The show will be headlined by Rampage Jackson Vs Chael Sonnen, in what will be the first fight of Bellator’s highly anticipated Heavyweight tournament. The card will also feature the return of Michael Chandler and Aaron Pico as well as the debut of Royce Gracie’s son Khonry. But the fight that is going to own the night will be the matchup between two of the best Welterweights in the world; Rory MacDonald and Douglas Lima.
When Rory MacDonald left the UFC for Bellator it was a hard pill to swallow. For me personally he is currently the best Welterweight fighter in the world. If he had remained with the UFC he would most likely be the current champion. Despite having lost to the former champion Robbie Lawler. Rory is still a nightmare matchup for anyone in the division, Including the current Champion Tyron Woodley who he already holds a victory over. It is hard not to fantasise about a world in which Rory was still in the UFC and the countless number of amazing fights we are missing out on. Could you just imagine what a great fight Rory MacDonald Vs Darren Till would be or how tactical a matchup with RDA would be. The list goes on and on of fights that I would love to see Rory take if he were still in the UFC. But unfortunately for us this is all just speculation that we may never get the answer to. Luckily we have a little while to go before we run out of interesting matchup’s for Rory in Bellator. IF he is able to get past Lima this weekend he will have potential bouts with Gegard Mousasi, Lorenz Larkin and Michael Venom Page on the horizon. All of which would be amazing.
