Main eventing Bellator 220 last night (Sat. April 27, 2019), Rory MacDonald defended his welterweight crown against Jon Fitch. Both men engaged in a hard-fought five-round championship bout.
Fitch’s wrestling ability certainly played a big factor, but MacDonald had his moments on the ground as well, going for a few kimuras and having success on the feet. When the fight went to the judges’ scorecards, one judge scored it for Fitch, while the other two scored it a draw.
The official decision was ruled a Majority Draw, however, MacDonald will retain his title and move on in the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix Tournament to face Neiman Gracie. Check out some highlights here:
