On Saturday, Jan. 20, Bellator MMA kicks off 2018 with its 192nd event from the Forum in Inglewood, Calif.
The card features a welterweight title tilt between champion Douglas Lima and former UFC title challenger Rory MacDonald. Lima, a two-time titleholder, looks to make his second consecutive title defense. The Canadian MacDonald made a successful debut in the circular cage last May, submitting veteran Paul Daley in the second round.
Also on the card, the promotion kicks off its heavyweight grand prix tournament. Former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is set to square off with perennial trash-talker Chael Sonnen.
The night’s main card airs live on the newly launched Paramount Network at 9 p.m. ET, following live prelims on the promotion’s website at 7 p.m. ET.
The fighters hit the scales at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, Jan. 19. Live video appears above (courtesy of Bellator MMA), while the results appear below.
