Rory MacDonald moved one step closer to a title shot this past weekend at UFC 174 when he defeated Tyron Woodley via decision. After the fight Rory spoke about his performance as well as on the topic of the difficulty of getting a title shot in a stacked division.
“I appreciate there are other guys who have come up and performed well, but I want everyone to know that I’m right there, ready for that shot. I want them to know I’m going to be the champion, if they make me wait for it or not. No one’s going to stop me.”
“I had a lot of fun. I’m happy. I was impressed with my training. It showed. I felt great. He’s a really good opponent. I had fun training for his style. It was an awesome challenge and a cool obstacle.
