The public challenge on network TV excited Condit, he said, since MacDonald is a fighter with "a lot of hype behind him" right now. At the same time, something about it seemed weird.

"I think the whole thing was pretty, I don't know, the tone of it made it seem like I had wronged him," Condit said. "Like I did something wrong. I was just doing what the hell I'm supposed to do."

Clearly, MacDonald has spent some time thinking about that night in Vancouver. That's when Condit put him on his back in the final round of a fight MacDonald seemed to be in control of, and then rained down a desperate series of elbows and punches until the referee stopped it with just seven seconds left. That loss to Condit stands as the only defeat on MacDonald's record so far, and it came in a fashion that "humiliated" him, MacDonald said later.

And yeah, Condit said, he can understand that, all things considered.

"I think it's probably the way that he lost. He was undefeated at that point. He was the man, the next big thing. I think he thinks it's his destiny to be the champion, and I went in there and smashed that dream. So I can see it. But it's a little bit odd, I think."

seems natural to me. His presentation of the challenge seemed odd, but his desire for redemption is understandable.

Rory will finish Condit. That fight was a draw, Rory was defending himself even at the end.

Anyway, that was Rory at 20, this kid is a fucking wrecking machine.

Condit has brought out the serial killer.

What, so now fighters should be polite when calling other fighters out? What MacDonald is likely saying with his tone is that he's pissed that he lost because he felt he was the better fighter that night and now he wants to prove it.
And yes Carlos, us unbiased observers know you didn't do anything wrong and that you were just doing what you were supposed to do, but Rory is not an unbiased observer. He wants to beat you up. And you want to beat him up, and you both want tons of people to pay to see it. So, try and get over the shock of Rory's tone. It's really not that hard to figure out.

You don't have to be polite, you just don't have to be awkward.  I was watching the fight with some casual fans and everyone was asking me "what did that guy Condit do to him?"  Ugh, he just beat him.  *awkward silence*

Condit is making fun of Rorys obvious autism.

As a Rory fan it embarrasses me that people can't accept his loss. Rory himself accepts his loss like a man, stop arguing it like bitches. I like both Rory and Condit, but it's not the ref's job to watch the clock... it's his job to watch the fighters.

Condit takes this convincingly, better skills and more heart than Rory.

Agreed. Just about anything he presents seems odd because of how he does it, but reasoning and motivation are what I would expect from most any fighter. Phone Post

I'm a big Condit fan, and at the time of the fight I was cheering for the stoppage and defending the win for Condit. I went back and watched the fight again recently, though, and it was a very awkward stoppage. Stopped seconds before the end of the fight, at a point when Rory was in no worse position than he had been for the majority of the round. The ref could have easily let it go to the end, which could have certainly ended in a draw, with Rory taking the first two and Condit taking a 10-8 in the third.

rory is no serial killer or stone cold psycho. stone cold psychos lead a nice normal life, laugh and ham it up then go home and apply lipstick on their face while playing the harp.
