Rory MacDonald Wins PNG

Canada has its next shot at a UFC world title, and it comes in the form of the welterweight strap, once held by GSP.

Montreal’s Rory MacDonald has been slated to face the winner of Hendricks vs. Lawler II, and he gets to do it in his hometown.

The Canadian Press broke the news today following a talk with UFC President Dana White.

“It’s pretty impossible to deny Rory that, whoever comes out of that Hendricks-Lawler fight, he’s the next guy in line,” White told The Canadian Press on Wednesday.

“I have a lot of respect for Saffiedine,” White said. “That’s guy’s tough to deal with. Rory just absolutely made him look like he didn’t belong there. He actually treated him like No. 9.”
