    The UFC is planning to return to Canada with UFC 174 on June 14. Rory MacDonald sees that as a perfect time to attempt to win the welterweight title and bring it to his native country.

"I wanted to let it all out," said MacDonald, during the post-fight show on FOX Sports 1. "I...

Despite the setback, the Tristar Gym fighter can position himself right back at the top of the list of welterweight contenders with a win over Maia. And, he doesn't even have to bother with all those questions surrounding a potential fight with teammate Georges St-Pierre. St-Pierre vacated the...
