Bellator steals the spotlight in a UFC off week with one of the biggest, most interesting shows in the promotion’s recent history. Welterweight champion Rory MacDonald moves up from 170 lbs for a ‘superfight’ with middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi. In the co-main event Rampage Jackson and Wanderlei Silva look to add another chapter to their long standing rivalry, as do Andrey Koreshkov and Douglas Lima in their Welterweight Grand Prix opening round bout. Throw in Aaron Pico taking a huge step up in competition, and there’s plenty to interest hardcore and casual fans alike.
