Just two fights in to Bellator and Michael Mcdonald is already making a case for a title shot. He knocked out former bantamweight Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas in the first round, just a minute into the fight. He hit Dantas with a clean shot and Dantas foot broke on the way down, but Mcdonald’s performance was still flawless.
Mcdonald moves on to 19-4 overall and 2-0 inside Bellator. Dantas is now 20-6 and 10-3 in the Bellator cage.
Darrion Caldwell was nearly out of contenders after he beat Leandro Higo, but now he’s got a clear one in Mcdonald. Which should be a heck of a fight.
