A new video has surfaced to the internet showing fight fans the state in which Rory MacDonald left the Bellator cage over the weekend.
Mixed martial arts promotion Bellator MMA hosted an exciting night of fights on Saturday, Jan. 20. Bellator 192 took place inside The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The event featured a welterweight war for the title in the co-headliner, as champion Douglas Lima faced off against former UFC title challenger Rory MacDonald.
The two mixed martial arts warriors threw down for five brutal rounds, with “Red King” ultimately walking away with a title earning decision victory. That being said, Lima dealt some serious damage to his opponent during the fight.
With his brutal leg kicks, Lima managed to seemingly mangle MacDonald’s shin and leg during the match up. By the end of the fight, MacDonald had suffered massive swelling on his leg and was unable to walk out of the arena on his own.
Rather, the newly crowned Bellator welterweight champion was carried out of the arena by two men. Check it out in the video above.
Rory MacDonald has since come forward to reveal that his leg is not broken. Rather, the title holder suffered a massive hematoma on his shin.
Taking to social media, MacDonald stated:
“Update: My leg is not broken. It is just a hematoma and will be fine.
“My nose is not broken. I shouldn’t be out of action too long.”
