Rory MacDonald makes it official as he appears at Bellator 160

In an unadvertised appearance on tonight's Bellator 160 on Spike TV, Rory MacDonald was announced as Bellator's newest signee. 

MacDonald appeared following an interview with Michael Venom Page, a signature Bellator star in the same weight class. He received a mixed response from the fans in Anaheim, perhaps due to the Canadian flag that covered the video wall.

In an interview with Bellator play-by-play man Sean Grande, MacDonald promised to take over Bellator. He said that he's coming after Koreshkov (Bellator welterweight champion) and won't stop there, claiming he'd take the middleweight title as well. He promised to put on a show for the fans, and said that Bellator had made him an offer he couldn't possibly refuse. 

The 27-year-old MacDonald recently finished out his UFC contract after going 9-4 with the promotion. He lost his last two UFC fights, including the fight of the year in 2015 against Robbie Lawler and a number one contender's bout earlier this year against Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson.
