The UFC always has the option to match whatever negotiations are ongoing, but they refused to in this case.

MacDonald (18-4) is riding his first back to back losses of his career. Most recently losing a decision to Stephen Thompson this past June.

The British Columbia native will look to climb atop the Bellator welterweight rankings and make his name known to a new set of fans.
