Bellator 179 took place last month at the SSE Arena in London, England and all of the in-competition drug test results from the event have came back clean.

Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulations Director Mike Mazzulli confirmed the drug test results to The MMA Report on Tuesday after they were requested.

Bellator 179 took place on May 19 and was headlined by Rory MacDonald winning his promotional debut by submission against Paul Daley in the second round. The victory for MacDonald secured him a title shot in the Bellator welterweight division and he is expected to fight for the Bellator 170 pound title later this year against the winner of the upcoming title fight between champion Douglas Lima and Lorenz Larkin.

    I see Bellator resigned Arlene Blencowe to a new contract. I imagine it’s another 4 fight deal. And Bellator has already booked her in a featherweight fight against the young Sinead Kavanaugh. I don’t like the matchup for Sinead Kavanaugh because Arlene Blencowe has some serious power in her punches. Have you seen that brutal knockout of Janay Harding courtesy of Arlene Blencowe? Genius move again by Bellator, the UFC is having issues with their Women’s Featherweight division and Bellator is ramping up their Women’s Featherweight division.

    Bellator needs to do research on their fighters. Bc some of them are returning to the promotion not debuting. Like Daniel Pineda is 1-3 in Bellator not 1-1.

    You think we will see Overeem vs Saki this year in the UFC?

    I hope Bellator signs Ricco Verhoeven. I’m shocked Bellator didn’t offer Overeem big money. But everybody else they did. He’s a top 3 HW. And Bellator could have said they have the 2nd best HW in the world.

    Fedor’s contract with Bellator is 2 fights. If the Mitrione fight happens after that who you wanna see him fight next? I hope they do Fedor vs Nelson on Spike next.

    What’s the deal with Carwin and Rizin?

    Would you rather see Lima vs Macdonald? Or Macdonald vs Larkin?

      – No

      – Fedor vs. Nelson makes a ton of sense. For me, I am picking Mitrione to defeat Fedor.

      What’s the deal with Carwin and Rizin?
      – Haven’t heard anything, but I will look into it.

      Would you rather see Lima vs Macdonald? Or Macdonald vs Larkin?
      – Lima vs. MacDonald

        Are surprised Bellator didn’t offer Overeem a big contract when he was a free agent? Given the fact they did with some other big name free agents?

    Who do you think would win in these MMA fights?

    Verhoeven vs Overeem? Fedor vs Nelson? Overeem vs Saki? Lesnar vs Lewis? Carvalho vs Shlemenko? Chandler vs Larkin? Daley vs MVP?

      Verhoeven vs Overeem? – Need to see more of Verhoeven in MMA bouts before answering this question
      Fedor vs Nelson? – Coin flip, but probably Nelson
      Overeem vs Saki? – Need to see more of Saki in MMA bouts before answering this question
      Lesnar vs Lewis? – Gut says Lesnar due to wrestling, but brain says Lewis due to his striking
      Carvalho vs Shlemenko? – Shlemenko
      Chandler vs Larkin? – This would have to be at welterweight and would have to go with Larkin, but wrestling would be concern
      Daley vs MVP? Page

        Who do you think will be Saki’s first fight? He’s only had 1 fight in MMA and he lost that fight. You think Rico Verhoeven will sign with Bellator this year?

      • Jason Floyd

        I would expect Saki to debut against a low end light heavyweight in UFC and I would not rule out Verhoeven ending up in the UFC.

        Rico says he rather sign with Bellator because he can do MMA and kickboxing.
