Ariel Helwani reacts to Rory MacDonald teasing his retirement from MMA


Bellator welterweight champion Rory MacDonald fought John Fitch at the SAP Center in San Jose, California live on DAZN. The fight ended in a majority draw which many thought was an extremely close fight.


Now he advances to the next stage of the Bellator grand Prix and he is scheduled to fight Neiman Gracie on June 14 at the Madison Square Garden next. But during the post-fight interview, Rory MacDonald confessed to John McCarthy that he doesn’t have the drive to hurt people inside the Octagon anymore. In a way, he might be hinting that this might be the end of his career.

Lest you forget, Rory MacDonald made his pro MMA debut 14 years ago as a 16 year old. Yes, 16 years old. IF that was it, he doesn’t owe anyone anything. Tremendous career.” Veteran MMA journalist from ESPN, Ariel Helwani tweeted.

I don’t have that killer inside,” MacDonald said after Bellator 220, which took place at SAP Center in San Jose. “It’s really hard to explain. I hesitate a little bit now. I don’t know what to say. It wasn’t my best performance.

It’s hard to pull the trigger,” he said. “I don’t have that killer instinct. It’s hard to explain

It takes a certain spirit to come in here and put a man through pain, and I don’t know if I have that same drive to hurt people anymore.” (H/T – Bloody Elbow)
