Check out the fight card and bout order for Bellator 206: Mousasi vs. MacDonald, set for September 29th in San Jose, CA.


By Mookie Alexander @mookiealexander Sep 24, 2018

On Saturday, September 29th in San Jose, California, Bellator MMA presents what has to be one of its biggest shows in company history. The main event is phenomenal, as middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi takes on welterweight champion Rory MacDonald, with Mousasi’s title at stake. If Rory wins, he’ll be the first simultaneous two-division champ in Bellator history.

The co-main event is a fourth fight between legends Rampage Jackson and Wanderlei Silva, with Wanderlei up 2-1 in the rivalry, having KO’d Rampage twice in PRIDE, before Rampage KO’d him at UFC 92. Ten years on, they meet again, and hopefully that fight isn’t difficult to watch.

Bellator 206 also marks the beginning of the eight-man welterweight Grand Prix, with former champs Douglas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov squaring off for a third time. The good news about this tournament is that all of the fights are five rounds, so if you’ve been crying out for more five-round non-title bouts in Bellator, here you go!

Rounding out the main card is young phenom Aaron Pico, taking on recent bantamweight title challenger Leandro Higo in a featherweight clash. Opening the main card is Keri Melendez, wife of Gilbert Melendez, facing off against Dakota Zimmerman.

This is the first Bellator card to be streamed exclusively on DAZN, and that applies to all countries where DAZN is available — United States, Canada, Italy, Japan, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. There will be no Paramount Network simulcast, but US subscribers are getting a 30-day trial, so effectively you can stream it for free after signing up, whether on your phone, tablet, computer, or television.

Here’s what’s on tap for this Saturday:

and as predicted, Macdonald's nose gets broken and now Fitch has a long wait for his first tournament fight

I expect Rory to be replaced and the tournament repackaged as an opportunity to face Rory for his WW title
