Bellator 192: “Lima vs. MacDonald” takes place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Jan. 20, 2018, featuring a title defense for two-time Welterweight champion “The Phenom” Douglas Lima against former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ace “The Red King” Rory MacDonald in the main event of the evening.
Earlier on the Spike TV-televised card, the professional mixed martial arts (MMA) debut of Khonry Gracie, son of Royce Gracie, will take place inside the Bellator cage. It will also be the pro debut for his opponent Devon Brock, a fight just made official by Bellator MMA.
On paper the advantage might actually go to Brock, because Gracie has only had one amateur fight last September, while Brock has gone undefeated (5-0) in five amateur bouts — all of them in 2017. Still, as we’ve heard from many fighters in the past, the name Gracie alone is intimidating, and Brock has to know he has a huge obstacle to climb with Khonry in front of him and his famous father cornering him cageside.
