Rory MacDonald Ready For His Title Shot

October 22, 2014

At UFC Fight Night 54, the Rory MacDonald train continued its way down the track by defeating Tarec Saffiedine with a decisive third round knockout. Will the UFC pay off this popular star with a title shot at the winner of Welterweight champion Johny Hendricks versus Robbie Lawler in their upcoming rematch? We believe he’s ready to fight anyone in the Welterweight division.

Rory has fought and trained in Georges St-Pierre’s shadow for many years, being the second man in the their famous Canadian camp. In the past, they even refused to fight each other, proving that loyalty is more important than personal gain. But now that Georges is retired and Rory is back where he belongs, it’s time for that elusive title shot.

The only knock on Rory in the past was that he didn’t finish opponents, but relied too heavily on the judge’s scorecards. With his third round knockout this past Saturday, he put the doubters, and his opponent to sleep.

Dana White and the UFC have quite the decision to make in the future, and it would only be fitting if Rory finally got that elusive title shot.
