Rory MacDonald was in a number one contenders fight when he fought Robbie Lawler, he just didn't know it. Lawler received a title fight versus Johny Hendricks after beating MacDonald when champion Georges St-Pierre walked away from the UFC.
Now with his latest win over Demian Maia, MacDonald is campaigning for the next title shot:
I would like to fight the winner of hendricks and lawler @ufc @danawhite

Although MacDonald is only riding a one fight win streak, he has won six of his last seven bouts and the argument could be made he is the only viable contender for the title after Hendricks and Lawler battle it out.
