One of my buddies just got signed to the UFC!
Rory is gonna fucken dominate!! I first saw him fight when he was 16, when he beat the **** out of some guy twice his age in KOTC. He has been tearing up the Canadian MMA scene every since.
Canadian Rory MacDonald, the highly-regarded 20-year-old from Kelowna, B.C., has signed a four-fight deal with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
MacDonald (9-0) is tentatively scheduled to debut with UFC in January 2010, according to Fanhouse.
MacDonald has won all nine of his matches via stoppage — four knockouts and five submissions — and claimed the King of the Cage Canada lightweight championship along the way.
In his most recent bout last month, MacDonald knocked out King of the Cage’s former light heavyweight Canadian champ Nick Hinchliffe in the second round.
The bout was MacDonald’s second as a welterweight, after the Kelowna fighter decided to move up in weight class. MacDonald is expected to compete in UFC’s welterweight division.
A report on popular MMA site The Underground suggested that MacDonald’s debut could come on January 11 at an Ultimate Fight Night in Virginia, where he would take on Mike Guymon, another recent addition to the UFC roster.
This summer, him and his training partner spent two weeks in montreal training with GSP's camp before one of GSP's fights. As far as I know, he has been invited to comeback and train with them again.
