Bellator 179 took place earlier today (May 19) inside the SSE Arena, Wembley in London, England.
In the main event, Rory MacDonald took on Paul Daley. The winner of the bout would have earned a shot at the Bellator welterweight title. The co-main event saw former Bellator light heavyweight champion Liam McGeary do battle with Linton Vassell.
But that’s not all.
