LONDON — Canada's Rory MacDonald submitted Britain's Paul Daley in the second round of their fight on Friday at Bellator 179.
MacDonald, a native of Kelowna, B.C., who fights out of Montreal, improved his professional MMA record to 19-40 in his Bellator debut.
The 27-year-old MacDonald signed with Bellator last August after his UFC contract expired. His last fight in the UFC was a June 2016 loss to current No. 2 contender Stephen (Wonderboy) Thompson.
MacDonald sunk in a rear-naked choke on Daley near the midway point of the second round, with the Brit tapping out at the 1:45 mark.
