Bellator 192: “Lima vs. MacDonald” goes down this Saturday night (Jan. 20, 2018) at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., featuring two-time Welterweight champion Douglas Lima against former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) star and current No. 1-ranked contender “Red King” Rory MacDonald.
Before that epic fight goes down — as well as the highly-anticipated Rampage Jackson vs. Chael Sonnen bout to kickoff the promotion’s Heavyweight Grand Prix — country music legend Trace Adkins will be on hand to sing the National Anthem. The performance will help anchor the simulcast of Bellator 192, which will be seen on both Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV) and CMT.
Adkins is well known to CMT viewers — in 2008 he won “CMT Male Video of the Year” and 2010 saw him win “Collaborative Video of the Year” for “Hillbilly Bone” with Blake Shelton. His latest hit is “Still a Soldier” and pays tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces. He was the American Country Music Awards top new male vocalist of 1996 and is a four-time Grammy Award nominee.
