The stars of Bellator 179 worked out in front of the media at the London Shootfighters Gym in the capital on Tuesday ahead of their respective bouts at Wembley Arena on Friday night.

In attendance to go through their paces were main event stars Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley and Rory ‘The Red King’ MacDonald, who will do battle for the right to face Bellator MMA welterweight champion Douglas Lima in the next title fight.

Both participants in the all-British co-main event were also in action, as light-heavyweights Liam McGeary and Linton Vassell worked out for the cameras.

Former UFC heavyweight Cheick Kongo was also in attendance to hit the mitts ahead of his main card clash with undefeated Augusto Sakai.
