As Kurt Angle would say, it's true, it's damn true!

That description is apt, considering former UFC fighter Rory MacDonald marched down the Bellator ramp like he was a WWE superstar making his appearance on WCW Nitro during the Monday Night Wars. MacDonald confirmed with Jimmy Smith that he has officially signed with Bellator tonight at Bellator 160.

Earlier we confirmed with Scott Coker that nothing was finalized yet, however it looks like MacDonald has officially made his decision stating that Bellator made him "an offer no one else could". MacDonald then went on to put everyone at 170lbs and 185lbs on notice, especially Bellator Welterweight champion Andrey Koreshkov.

As one of the top Welterweights in the world, MacDonald is an incredible acquisition for Bellator.
