Gegard Mousasi Earns TKO Win Over Rory MacDonald At Bellator 206
Reigning Bellator MMA welterweight champion Rory MacDonald moved up at 185-pound to challenge current middleweight Gegard Mousasi in an attempt to become Bellator’s first two-division champion simultaneously, but Mousasi pour the water on MacDonald’s dream. As Gegard Mousasi successfully defended his title after defeating Rory MacDonald via second-round TKO last night (Sat., Sept. 29, 2018) at Bellator 206 live on DAZN from inside SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.
From early on, Mousasi strike a jab. MacDonald ultimately became pissed of having his nose damaged and reached in for an ankle grab in the second round. Mousasi sense the feeling and defended it nicely, and ended up in the mount position.
Mousasi hurled some devastating elbows to an already bloody MacDonald. “Red King.” tried to stay in the fight but Mousasi’s rained down elbows and punches that was too much to handle until the referee stepped in to wave off the action.
Mousasi (45-6-2), now pushed that streak to eight in a row. With the defeat, MacDonald’s (20-5) two-fight win streak snapped and has now lost three of his past five.
