He stuffed numerous takedown attempts from the All-American collegiate wrestler from Penn State and controlled the action on the ground until he finally put Ruth away in the championship rounds.

The winner takes on Douglas Lima in the finals later this year.MacDonald (20-5-1) struggled but advanced to this point by going to a draw with Jon Fitch in the first round in April at Bellator 220 . Because the fight went to a draw and MacDonald is the champion, he advanced in the tournament. The 29-year-old then conducted an awkward post-fight interview in which he hinted at possibly quitting. But a couple of days later, the Canadian clarified and said he would continue fighting in the tournament.
By Andrew WagnerJul. 11, 2017 , 7:15 PM Watch this spider walk just like an ant In order to avoid spider-loving predators, the jumping spider Myrmarachne formicaria has evolved to look like an ant. But a new study suggests it has learned to walk like an ant, too. The arachnid walks back and forth in a winding wave motion that looks like an ant following a trail, researchers report today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. Scientists previously thought that these antlike spiders don’t use their front legs at all when walking, constantly raising them up as pantomime antennae. However, when viewed in slow motion with a high-speed camera, the spiders move using all eight legs, only raising their forelimbs whenever they take a pause. These pauses appear to be consistently spaced out and timed just long enough to cement the antennae illusion for any predators that may be watching.
