MMA

Gegard Mousasi became the Bellator MMA Middleweight Champion with a first round TKO victory over Rafael Carvalho in the main event of Bellator 200.

The new middleweight champion would call out Bellator MMA Welterweight Champion Rory MacDonald after the fight and MacDonald would go through Twitter to accept the challenge.

Bellator MMA President Scott Coker is seemingly in line with both champions, saying the fight will happen one day.

“Rory was blowing my phone up, going ‘let’s do it,'" Coker said after the event. “‘Like, I wanna get this fight done’. You know what, we’ll go back and we’ll see. We’re working on a few things to see if it all makes sense, but that fight will happen soon. I mean, it will happen one day. But how soon? I’m not sure.”

If the fight does come to fruition, it would seem like the middleweight strap would be on the line in this potential champion versus champion encounter.
