Following his highlight reel knockout of Brennan Ward at Bellator 170 last month, Paul Daley challenged former UFC title challenger-turned Bellator signee Rory MacDonald to "come get some."

"I'm looking at everybody. Rory MacDonald coming from the UFC thinking he's going to do his bullsh*t over here?" said Daley. "It ain't going to happen. Rory MacDonald gets in this cage with me, he's getting knocked the f*ck out."

Rory seemed somewhat unfazed by the callout.

In either case, it looks like both men will be getting the chance to settle things in the cage.

This morning, Bellator officials announced that Daley vs. MacDonald is official for Bellator 179 in London.

Check out the press release below:

On May 19, the explosive fighter from Nottingham, England will meet Rory MacDonald (18-4) in the main event of Bellator 179: Daley vs. MacDonald at The SSE Arena, Wembley.

Bellator 179: Daley vs. MacDonald will be broadcast on SPIKE at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Tickets for the event will be available Friday, March 3 at The SSE Arena, Wembley Box Office (0844 815 0815), and

According to the release, Bellator 179 will also feature the return of welterweight prodigy Michael "Venom" Page, who himself was attempting to taunt "Semtex" into a fight in recent weeks as well.

In any case, it'll be a hell of a challenge for McDonald to take on in his promotional debut, and one that will almost surely deliver in terms of entertainment. Who ya got?
