Bellator 179 is Set After Paul Daley and Rory MacDonald Make Weight

Former UFC welterweight contender Rory MacDonald will finally make his Bellator debut opposite Paul Daley at Bellator 179 on Friday in London. 

The two stepped on the scale on Thursday, both men making weight. MacDonald weighed in at 170.1 pounds, while Daley weighed 170.8 pounds.

The two headline a card that just recently lost its co-main event bout when Michael “Venom” Page fell out due to injury.  He was supposed to have fought Derek Anderson.

A light heavyweight showdown between Liam McGeary and Linton Vassell, who also easily made weight, has been elevated to the co-headlining role.
