Last night in Halifax Nova Scotia, Rory MacDonald picked up a TKO win over Tarec Saffiedine in front of his native Canadian crowd, stopping ‘Sponge’ for the first time in his career.
Saffiedine spoke with MMAJunkie following the loss:
“I don’t really have an excuse, I came prepared, I had a good camp and I was mentally ready and physically ready. I guess Rory did a good job. He imposed his will and his game plan.”
“Those things happen and I just got to go back to the gym and train harder for the next fight. That’s it. I took a loss tonight and I’ve got to come back stronger.”
“I have no excuses. I came ready and I just have to go the gym tomorrow and train my butt off for the next one.”
