Douglas Lima took a photo with Rory MacDonald on a stretcher after losing Bellator title

Rory MacDonald and Douglas Lima showed off their battle wounds following a grueling title fight in the Bellator 192 co-main event.

MacDonald (20-4 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) claimed the Bellator welterweight title from Lima (29-7 MMA, 11-3 BMMA) in Saturday’s Bellator 192 event, winning a hard-fought unanimous decision in the Paramount-televised event at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

Both men sustained plenty of damage over the course of the 25-minute affair (and MacDonald’s leg took the worst of it). Afterward, Lima posted a backstage photo with the new champion, expressing his disappointment with the outcome with a classy statement (via Instagram):
