As the man-code goes, any men who exchange words must fight, according to Chael Sonnen anyway. After Bellator welterweight Rory MacDonald had signed his deal with Bellator him and Sonnen crossed each other’s paths in an Elevator. Sonnen asked who MacDonald wanted to fight in the promotion, Sonnen told the story on the MMA hour;

“I’m at an event, it was going to be Fedor (versus) Mitrione, and Rory had just signed on Tuesday, and today is Friday. So I end up in an elevator with him and he’s eating an apple, which becomes relevant in the story later. We’re in the elevator and we’re heading down and I say, ‘Hey, congrats! What are you looking to fight?’ He says, ‘I don’t know, maybe Paul Daley’. Then he says, ‘Maybe Josh Koscheck’. Then he takes a bite of his apple, and he looks up and goes: ‘Maybe you.’ Right as he says that, the doors open. I wished him well and that was the end of it, we were on our way.”

With both men big names in the Bellator promotion it is possible that the two will clash in the octagon, however Sonnen is much older than MacDonald and so we’re unsure if MacDonald would think it is a fair fight. The Red King claimed victory in his first appearance for Bellator MMA against Paul Daley via a RNC in the 2nd round.

Sonnen lost at his first Bellator appearance, however he did claim defeat via decision more recently over Wanderlei Silva. Sonnen is now 40 years old while MacDonald is still in his prime at 27. Would the matchup be even? Leave a comment on who you think would be victorious.
