Bellator 179: “MacDonald vs. Daley” takes place TONIGHT (Fri., May 19, 2017) from inside SSE Arena in London, England, featuring the long-awaited promotional debut of Rory MacDonald as he takes on the hometown favorite with dynamite hands known as Paul “Semtex” Daley.

The main event should be worth the price of admission (free on SPIKE), but in case you had any doubts, former Light Heavyweight champion Liam McGeary faces Linton Vassell, and Heavyweight bruisers Cheick Kongo and Augusto Sakai are good to go. There’s also a “Baby Slice” fight scheduled for the broadcast as well.

Bellator 179 will start at 9 p.m. ET on Spike TV with “Prelims” bouts on Spike.com at 7 p.m. ET. MMAmania.com will deliver results and play-by-play for the entirety of the Bellator card.

Many readers check in before, during and after the fights to share their thoughts on all of the action. Feel free to leave a comment (or 179) about the bouts and chat with all the other Maniacs during the show — it’s always a lot of fun!
