Catch all the preliminary action from today’s Bellator 192 card in Los Angeles, right here on Cageside Press!
Bellator 192 takes place Saturday at the Forum in Los Angeles, CA. Atop the card is the first bout of the opening round of the Bellator World Heavyweight Grand Prix 2018. That main event features Chael Sonnen taking on Rampage Jackson. With Sonnen giving up a sizeable advantage in weight to the power punching Rampage, he’ll be looking to get Jackson down early — and keep him there.
The fight that was to top the bill, meanwhile, is now the co-main event: Douglas Lima vs. Rory MacDonald. With champ Lima’s welterweight title on the line, this should have received top billing, but with the names Rampage and Chael involved, those responsible for ensuring ratings success switched things up in advance of the card.
Either way, Rory MacDonald and Douglas Lima is one of the most anticipated welterweight fights of 2018.
