Fans of MMA have a busy weekend ahead, and it includes a special title match. The Welterweight title-holder defends his title in a tournament that ends in an undisputed champion. See the current champion in action by watching MacDonald vs. Fitch in Bellator 220 exclusively on DAZN

Bellator 220 is being held at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time with the Prelims, and the Main card starts at 10 p.m. The entire night of MMA is available only on DAZN.

The main event of the night is part of the Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix Tournament. This is the last match of the quarter finals round. Current Welterweight champion Rory "Red King" MacDonald (20-5) puts his title on the line for the night, and all three rounds of the Grand Prix as well. The 29 year old Canadian has held the Welterweight title for a year, but hadn't defended it yet because he moved up in weight to try for the Middleweight belt as well. After that was unsuccessful, he's come back to Welterweight and this tournament.

Jon Fitch (32-7-1) has had a career full of championships and title matches, but this is his first chance to claim a title in Bellator. This 41 year old American wrestler joined this promotion only a year ago, but has already defeated Paul Daley, a top Welterweight contender in a crowded field in this promotion. If he can win this weekend, he will become champion, but must continue in the tournament to hold the title. The winner of this match will face Brazilian Neiman Gracie.

Watch Rory MacDonald and Jon Fitch train physically and mentally to take on one another in Countdown to Bellator 220.
