Rory MacDonald (21-6, 1 NC) was last seen in action late October when he faced Douglas Lima in the final of Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix. The latter won the fight and took the revenge by unanimous decision to become a new champion.

Prior to that MacDonald retained the belt by unanimous decision against Neiman Gracie and via majority draw with Jon Fitch. In September last year the 30-year-old fighter attempted to become two-division champion challenging then middleweight titleholder Gegard Mousasi, yet was stopped in the second round. He initially took the welterweight strap by unanimous decision against Douglas Lima early 2018.

Earlier in his career MacDonald contested for UFC welterweight title, but fell short against Robbie Lawler, who took the win via fifth-round TKO. His resume includes the wins against Nate Diaz, Tyron Woodley, Demian Maia, among others.

The date, place and opponent for Rory MacDonald in his PFL debut is yet to be announced.
