Not every good fighter is gifted with skills on the microphone. Which is probably why UFC 189 is the Conor McGregor show and not the Rory MacDonald show.
Wait… you didn’t even know that MacDonald was fighting next Saturday, did you? Yeah, he is. In fact, he’s challenging welterweight champ Robbie Lawler for the belt. Crazy, right?
Anyway, while every has been focused on an Irishman talking his way into a title shot, Ronda Rousey destroying all who stand before her, and Jon Jones throwing away a career because he likes to party, the UFC’s 170-pound division has been quietly ruled by elite striker Robbie Lawler. Creepy Canadian MacDonald is looking to change all that.
Just in case you forgot if MacDonald has the chops to dethrone the champ, here’s a vid of him in action.
