The Bellator MMA cage returns to the UK as the SSE Arena, AKA Wembley Arena, in London plays host to Bellator 179, and one of the biggest main events in Bellator MMA history.

That’s because former UFC welterweight title challenger and top-ranked 170-pound star Rory ‘The Red King’ MacDonald is set to make his long-awaited Bellator debut against British power striker Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley.

The winner will get a shot at the Bellator welterweight title, currently held by Douglas Lima, but who’ll be the man stepping up to face the champ later this year?
