MacDonald wants winner of Hendricks/Lawler


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.

Nick Diaz should fight Rory MacDonald. I'd pay to see that. And why wouldn't you want to fight the guy that completely embarrassed your brother?

It's because Jake "split decision" Shields just eeks by every fight and they are boring as hell. It's pretty much the reason Dana said Benson would not get a title shot after beating Thomson. Jake needs to try and actually finish a fight once. Plus in his last 6, he's lost 2 and tested positive for roids the other time.

Shields not getting love as usual. Shields JUST beat Woodley and Woodley has traded off wins with losses his last couple fights. Even with a big win over Condit, Woodley is still a win away AT LEAST from a title shot. When Shields beats Lombard, he should get winner of Hendricks/Lawler.

He should fight the winner of Condit/Woodley or Lombard if he wins.But win or lose against Lombard, they should really avoid giving Shields a fight against MacDonald. Even if MacDonald wins, Shields has tendency to make guys just look horribly mediocre in the process of looking awful himself.

Robbie took his lunch money? It was a split decision that could have went either way, ended with Rory on top, and an exhausted Lawler. If that would have been a 5 rounder, I don't think Robbie would have pulled it out. Either way, it was a very close fight and Rory could already be fighting for the title now.But I agree with others that Condit/Woodley will be the next contender.
