“It’s not that I don’t want the title shot. I want it to be clear: I want that. But I respect the decision that there are two guys ahead of me that have been promised it, but if that fight is a stinker, I’m ready to step in. I like to fight. If I wait a year for a shot or if someone gets injured or whatever maybe they forget about me. So I’ll just continue fighting if I have to wait (for a title shot)… I’ll be holding that belt very soon. There’s no doubt in my mind.”
Following his decisive victory over Tyron Woodley, UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald discussed his desire to stay active over waiting for a title shot.
