Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE
It's been over two years, but UFC welterweight phenom Rory MacDonald hasn't forgotten about the night he was "embarrassed" by Carlos Condit in Vancouver. Find out why "Ares" is gunning for revenge after he takes on BJ Penn next month in Seattle.
"I respect him completely, he's one of the guys I respect most in the sport. His outlook and his attitude is great. But I feel like I was embarrassed in that fight. I want to prove to myself and the world that I am the better fighter and I want revenge for the embarrassment I felt that night. Everyone has their own opinion of the fight, but at the end of the day I lost and was embarrassed. It is what it is. I plan to be the world champ."
I wouldn't trade places with
Edmund Exley Carlos Condit right now for all the whiskey in Ireland. That's because Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight phenom Rory MacDonald (via ESPN.co.uk) is out for revenge after being "embarrassed" by "The Natural Born Killer" at UFC 115 way back in June 2010. "Ares" was on his way to what looked like a convincing unanimous decision victory until Condit secured an unlikely come-from-behind technical knockout victory with just seven seconds left to fight. Before he can get his revenge, however, the 13-1 Canadian will first need to get past B.J. Penn at the UFC on FOX 5 event next month in Seattle. How far will MacDonald go in 2013 -- and beyond?
