The way UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald speaks about divisional peer Carlos Condit might lead some folks to think “The Natural Born Killer” wronged him on a personal level. However, it turns out MacDonald is simply bitter about the way their 2010 tilt turned out.
MacDonald was winning the fight up until the final ten seconds when Condit rocked him, then pounded him out for the TKO victory. The loss left an extremely bad taste in MacDonald’s mouth and, as he told BJPenn.com, he’s out for retribution come March 16 when the two meet in a rematch at UFC 158.
“I want to make him feel the embarrassment I felt in front of his family the same way I felt. I want to hurt him the way he hurt me and I don’t want him ever to forget the time that we’re going to be in there for those 15 minutes. I want him to think about that for the rest of his life.”
“My overall MMA game has changed so much and I’ve added so many different techniques that from where I was when I fought him the first time. I’m just a whole other fighter. I don’t fight anything like I did when we first fought.”
