The now former UFC #3 ranked Welterweight Rory MacDonald has officially signed to Bellator after the UFC failed to match Bellator’s offer after his contract with the UFC ran out.

This comes after about a year of many top UFC fighters openly complaining about the UFC’s pay structure, claiming it to be unfair to its fighters. Rory will most definitely be a huge name for Bellator moving forward and you can expect to see him headline his own shows much like we now see with Benson Henderson.
