UFC “Interested” in Making Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald 2

It was clear after Rory MacDonald defeated B.J. Penn at UFC on Fox 5 he only had one fight on his mind.

The young Canadian immediately grabbed the microphone from UFC commentator Joe Rogan’s hand, and asked for a rematch against Carlos Condit – the only fighter to hand him a loss in his career.

MacDonald met Condit in 2010, but after winning the first two rounds with takedowns and ground control, he found out just how much heart and determination the former UFC and WEC champion had inside of him.

Condit battled back in the third round and battered MacDonald with strikes, eventually getting a stoppage with just seconds left to go in the fight.

Now MacDonald wants his chance at a little bit of revenge after he believes Condit embarrassed him in the Octagon the last time out.

“I was just laying there getting beaten on, my face looked like I was the guy from “The Goonies” after. I was embarrassed about my performance and how I held myself,” MacDonald said at the UFC on Fox 5 post fight press conference.

“It did a lot of damage and I don’t think I’ve been the same person since, so I want to get that back.”

His call out may have worked because UFC President Dana White said he likes when fighters call out other fighters, and he could definitely see Condit vs. MacDonald 2 on the horizon.

“I am interested in that, and I like when guys call other guys out. If that’s the fight he wants then we’ll try to make it,” said White when speaking to Fuel TV.

Condit most recently fought at UFC 154 when he lost a unanimous decision to UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

    Sounds like bad news for Condit… a two fight losing streak is never a good thing!

      you’re definitely right on that. i’d definitely like to see this rematch or kampmann vs condit rematch. i think that makes sense because they’re both coming off losses to the top guys in the division.

        Hes a spoiled disrespectfull kid. I wouldn’
        t give him a thing. He dresses like *****.

    If the UFC gives Diaz the title shot (which I hope they don’t)
    then Rory vs. Hendricks, but if they give Hendricks the shot (which I hope they do) then Diaz vs Rory.

    Condit better come with another “special” gameplan when he fights rory, lets see how many leg kicks and running will happen in that rematch , but rory should focus on moving forward and not backward , let the loser condit fight the loser bj penn or kappmann or give condit another ufc “can” so he can build up his finishing rate :))

    seeing as GSP is in dodge mode, why not go Hendricks vs. McDonald? I wonder if McDonald really wants a piece of the Big Rig
