NEW PODCAST: Rory MacDonald, Bellator MMA Welterweight World Champion

THIS IS EPISODE 284 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Rory MacDonald is Bellator MMA’s welterweight world champion. On April 27, he’ll defend his title at Bellator 220 against Jon Fitch in a fight that is simultaneously the first round of Bellator’s Welterweight Grand Prix.

MacDonald fought in the UFC from 2010-2016, before signing a contract in August 2016 with Bellator. In his 25 total fights, he has 20 wins (seven by knockout, seven by submission) and five losses. He’s been competing as a professional since 2005, when he was 16 years old.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk to MacDonald about his upcoming fight at Bellator 220, the rigorous training he puts himself through to prepare for a fight, how Christ got a hold of his life over the past few years after he was headed down a destructive path, and how Easter and Good Friday have taken on new meaning for him.
