MacDonald vs. Condit rematch targeted for UFC 158 in Montreal
Rory MacDonald on Wednesday told MMAjunkie.com Radio he’s been granted the rematch with Condit , and UFC President Dana White confirmed the booking to MMAjunkie.com.
The fight is targeted for March 16 at Bell Centre in Montreal. Though the UFC has not officially announced that show, sources close to the event said it will be UFC 158, a pay-per-view. The placement of the MacDonald-Condit fight was not revealed, though it will be positioned on the main card.
MacDonald’s loss to Condit is the lone setback of his career. It came at UFC 115 in June 2010, and it came after MacDonald had won the first two rounds on a pair of scorecards. He took Condit down several times in the first two frames before Condit rallied in the third and was able to get a TKO stoppage with just seven seconds left in the fight.
“In Montreal – I got exactly what I wanted,” said MacDonald said. “You can’t get what you don’t ask for. I’m very, very happy… I’ve been waiting for this day for two and a half years.”
