Bellator 220 results: Rory MacDonald retains title after majority draw with Jon Fitch

On Saturday night at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., Bellator 220 featured two title fights and a ton of controversy as both Rory MacDonald and Ilima-Lei Macfarlane retained their belts in unsatisfying fashion.

In the main event, Rory MacDonald took on former WSOF champion Jon Fitch. A huge favorite heading into the bout, MacDonald was unable to avoid Fitch’s takedowns for the most part though Fitch was unable to mount much offense either. In the third round, Fitch was finally able to secure a takedown, hold position, and start actually landing strikes, even opening up a cut over MacDonald’s eye, and it looked like the momentum had turned.
