Rory MacDonald | "I think I could beat anybody in the division right now,"

April 25, 2012 7:00 am by Jamie McAllister

“I think I could beat anybody in the division right now,” MacDonald told Sid Seixeiro on Sportsnet 590

“I’ve evolved so much, added so many tools to my game,” MacDonald said. “I feel like I’ve put so many things in my game that I can be aggressive but technical at the same time.”

“It takes experience (to learn how to stay calm),” MacDonald explained. “I’ve lost control in one of my fights before (but) basically (I) try to keep composed and try not to make mistakes and keep my technique.”

“A lot of people think it’s better to go into berserker mode, but it’s not actually. I’m a pretty exciting fighter without going into berserker mode.”

“(Waterboy) wasn’t fitting for my character when I step into the Octagon,” MacDonald said. “I found it weird, people I didn’t know calling me Waterboy.”

“It’s about principle,” MacDonald said. “You can’t dance with the devil. I didn’t get into (mixed martial arts) for money … I’m not taking a fight against Georges. We’re training partners and help each other get better … I stick to my principles. I believe in friendship. I have to think more tomorrow and 10 years from now.”

“I’ve got to heal my elbow up and see how I feel in two weeks. I don’t want to fight too soon so I’ll be injured when I fight … I definitely want to make an appearance on Canadian soil,”
