Rory MacDonald Post UFC 189

“UFC 189” could easily go down as the greatest event in Ultimate Fighting Championship history. Conor McGregor became the new king of the featherweight division while an injured Jose Aldo watched from the sidelines and the co main-event was a contender for “Fight of the Year”.

Unfortunately, Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald will pay the price for putting on such an amazing performance. MacDonald was barely recognizable the day after the fights and could be serving a suspension until January 2016. Check out the full report (obtained by Sherdog) below!
