Rory MacDonald is set to make his long-awaited debut for Bellator MMA on Friday when he squares off with one of the best contenders in the company at welterweight in Paul Daley. MacDonald, coming off back-to-back losses, hasn’t fought since losing to Stephen Thompson by unanimous decision last June. MacDonald (18-4) could get right into the title conversation with a win, but Daley is no pushover.

Daley (39-14-2) is coming off a vicious flying knee TKO of Brennan Ward in January. He’s fought five times since returning to Bellator and boasts a 4-1 mark since 2015.

Plus, Kimbo Slice’s son, Baby Slice, is looking to get his first professional win after losing via submission in his debut last year.

Here’s how the full card looks.
