Although both men said goodbye to their prime as fighters quite some time ago, Sonnen and Jackson have become known for their often unique take on things and remain relevant figures at the sport's highest level.

Emelianenko and Mir are set to fight in April, with the victor of that bout taking on Sonnen for the right to compete for the Bellator heavyweight title, which has been vacant since May 2016.

Two of the best welterweight fighters in the world met one another on Saturday night as Bellator MMA welterweight champion Douglas Lima aimed to prove he is to be taken more seriously against a beloved challenger, Rory MacDonald, making just his second appearance with the promotion.

All told, Sonnen (30-15-1) defeated Jackson (37-13-0) via unanimous decision to advance to the semifinals of the Bellator MMA World Grand Prix, where the victor of Fedor Emelianenko vs.

This now marks back-to-back wins by unanimous decision for Sonnen. "I do expect him to hand me it".

Sonnen would gain a unanimous decision victory to move on in the Bellator Heavyweight Championship tournament. "But I'll tell you what, I will not cash that check".

In his Bellator debut, MacDonald fought Paul Daley in the main event at Bellator 179 on May 19, 2017.

In the end, this unbelievable battle probably could have gone to either man, but it was MacDonald who came away with the unanimous decision win on all three judges' scorecards. It wasn't until the third round we saw Rampage was able to use his size to control Sonnen.

Aaron Pico continued his winning ways in Bellator after suffering a loss in his debut a year ago, earning his second consecutive first-round knockout. "I was ready to fight him yesterday in the green room, would've reached right over my mother".

As usual, Sonnen (30-15-1 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) relied on his wrestling to get him through the fight. "Each time I fight I'm going to keep getting better and better".
