Bellator 222 staredowns

Bellator 222: “MacDonald vs. Gracie” is locked and loaded to take place this Friday night (June 14, 2019) inside Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y, streaming live online via DAZN. Prior to this weekend’s big show, the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion recently held a media day at Hulu Theater to showcase Bellator 222’s main card fighters.

Of course, no promotional MMA media event is complete without staredowns, and Bellator 222 is no exception. Watch Welterweight champion Rory MacDonald come face-to-face with the undefeated Neiman Gracie in the full staredowns video above, while former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighters Chael Sonnen and Lyoto Machida get nose-to-nose in the highlights below.
