Gegard Mousasi vs. Rory MacDonald has been set for a Bellator MMA event in September, according to multiple reports. Mousasi, the reigning middleweight titleholder, will put his belt on the line against the current welterweight king.
When it comes to quality fights outside of the UFC, this fight tops them all. Both Mousasi and MacDonald could arguably be champions in the UFC right now, especially MacDonald since he holds a win over the current Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley.
In the video above, Michael Hutchinson gives his reaction to the announcement, and how the quality of this fight does a good job of offsetting the less than stellar fights that Bellator puts on.
In addition to Mousasi vs. McDonald, the unnamed Bellator event is also expected to feature a fourth bout between Wanderlei Silva and Quinton Jackson. A press conference will be held on July 26th in New York City with further details.
