Former UFC fighter and current Bellator welterweight contender Rory MacDonald wants his next fight purse to be paid to him Bitcoin.
Rory recently left the UFC for Bellator because they offered him a larger contract, so Rory is no stranger to putting himself in the position to make the most money out of his fighting skills. So now he is asking for his huge $500K fight purse to be paid to him in Bitcoin, another move that shows he is always looking to the future.
No word from Bellator yet if they will agree to his request. But either way it’s another sign that Bitcoin and crypto currency is reaching the mainstream.
