Bellator 192
January 20, 2018
Great Wester Forum
Inglewood, California, USA


Main Card:
Douglas Lima (28-6)          vs.     (18-4) Rory MacDonald   
Main Event |  Title Fight | Welterweight | 170 lbs (77 kg)
Goiti Yamauchi (22-3)        vs.   (16-4) Michael Chandler

Georgi Karakhanyan (27-7) vs.     (14-3) Henry Corrales  
Main Card | Featherweight | 145 lbs (66 kg)

Bellator will returns to Los Angeles to kick off its 2018 schedule with a championship bout on Saturday, January 20.
The main event features two of the best 170-pounders in the world, as champ Douglas Lima (29-6) defends his Bellator welterweight world title against Rory MacDonald (19-4) in a thrilling five-round matchup.

Fighting out of Atlanta, Ga., Douglas "The Phenom" Lima has been ruling the roost at 170-pounds in Bellator for the better part of three years. With wins against the likes of Lorenz Larkin, Andrey Koreshkov, Paul Daley and Ben Saunders, the 29-year-old has quietly placed himself among division's elite. A winner of 17 of his last 19 contests, the American Top Team product remains set on showing the world how dominant he is.

Over the last several years, "The Red King" Rory MacDonald has become the most popular Canadian mixed martial artist due to his classic stand-up wars and wins over some of MMA's best in Nate Diaz, Tyron Woodley, B.J. Penn and Demian Maia. A training partner of Georges St-Pierre at the world-renowned TriStar Gym in Montreal, the 28-year-old joined Bellator's welterweight fray in 2016 and immediately made an impact by submitting Paul Daley at Bellator 179 in the second round.
The main event of Bellator L.A will feature Bellator's two-time bantamweight champion Douglas "The Phenom" Lima (29-6) defending his belt against Rory "Red King" MacDonald (19-4).

Yup and how many times have they been proven wrong. Of course, we know that they'll go to their usual excuse of "He was never that good to begin with" if Rory does lose.

They have been proven wrong countless times but they will definitely have their excuses prepared.

It was good to see Materla turn them down. I read there were others from KSW who turned down offers. Things are changing for sure.

Yes they are and it's great. In fact, we're seeing more fighters leave then come to the UFC as companies are no longer struggling to keep their fighters. Speaking of Lima, he signed a long term extention.

Why should Materla leave. UFC is disorganized and has nothing going for it other than "The place where the best fighters in the world" fight but that won't last long at the rate they're going. Meanwhile, KSW blew UFC's record with their stadium show which, of course, some had to make excuses and say the tickets were cheaper. KSW may not be the biggest in the world but if he's happy, so what? It's not always about "fighting the best", happiness and money also play a factor.

Should be a great main event. Bellator wins either way. Either Lima wins which again means one of their home created guys can beat a UFC fighter or MacDonald wins which could help them in Canada especially after UFC lost GSP and MacDonald didn't win a title over there which hurt the Canadian market for them.

Michael Chandler's designs on reclaiming the title he unceremoniously lost this summer will have to wait.

After a freak injury cost him the Bellator lightweight strap - which now belongs to Brent Primus - this past June, the 31-year-old is getting back in the saddle against Goiti Yamauchi at Bellator 192 on Jan. 20 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

Chandler had mounted a four-fight win streak and defended the lightweight title in a five-round battle with Benson Henderson prior to seeing his second reign end in surreal fashion due to an ankle injury sustained in his bout with Primus at Bellator NYC.

Yamauchi, 24, gets the stiffest test of his career less than a month after re-upping with Bellator on a long-term deal. The submission artist has won eight of 10 promotional bouts and three straight by first-round tapout since moving up to 155 pounds last October. He most recently handed Adam Piccolotti his first career loss with a rear-naked choke at Bellator 183 in September.

Also, The first of four fights making up the first round of the 2018 Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix will take place Friday, February 16 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. and will former champ Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (37-12) taking on renowned trash-talker Chael Sonnen (30-15-1) in an exciting first-round matchup.
