A Bellator welterweight championship fight is being targeted for their recently announced MSG show on June 14. Neiman Gracie will take on the winner of Rory MacDonald vs. Jon Fitch in what will be a semifinal matchup for the Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix Tournament.

Current welterweight champion MacDonald (20-5) is coming off of a second-round TKO loss to Gegard Mousasi for the middleweight belt at Bellator 206 last September. “The Red King” battles Fitch (31-7-1-1NC) in a quarterfinal Grand Prix bout for the title later this month.

Gracie (9-0) advanced to the semifinals of the Grand Prix with a fourth-round submission victory over Ed Ruth at Bellator 214 last December.
