MMA H.E.A.T.’s Karyn Bryant was on the Paramount Pictures lot where she caught up with Rory MacDonald in advance of his Bellator 192 title fight with Champ Douglas “Phenom” Lima. Rory explains why the Champ’s skill set won’t match his own, how this fight will differ from his last fight with Paul Daley, his former training partner GSP’s return and whether it affected his own motivation and the possibility of a future match-up with Middleweight Gegard Mousasi.

  1. Rory is one of the greatest martial artists iv ever witnessed within MMA. I'm a seasoned jiu jitsu expert (12 years), above average Judo and lower end trained karate & Boxing so kind of know what I'm talking about… And the UFC losing Rory McDonald is massive!!! All my other martial artist friends agree as well that its a monumental loss for the UFC by allowing Rory to put his signature down on Bellators paperwork. I guarantee Coker thanks his lucky stars daily for snagging such a highly sought after martial artist.
