Bellator 192 Medical Suspensions Include Rory MacDonald, Douglas Lima

Both the new Bellator welterweight champion and former titleholder are looking at extended stays on the sidelines following their five round battle at Bellator 192 this past weekend.

Rory MacDonald, who bested Lima to win the title from The Forum in Los Angeles, could be shelved for 180 days after suffering a serious leg injury during the bout. MacDonald was transported immediately to a local hospital following the conclusion.

Lima is looking at a 60-day suspension, but his is just for the cut suffered over his right eye.
