Rory MacDonald called out Carlos Condit following his UFC on Fox 5 victory over B.J. Penn. Condit's manager has gone public saying they'll take the fight if Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) asks. Find out the details below.

While Rory MacDonald is more widely known for being reserved, he showed a serious change in character this past Saturday night (Dec. 8, 2012) in his UFC on Fox 5 post-fight speech following his three round destruction of B.J. Penn. "Ares" called out former opponent Carlos Condit and proclaimed he had unfinished business against "The Natural Born Killer."

Not one to back down from a challenge, Condit's manager Malki Kawa spoke to MMA Weekly earlier today on the matter, saying:

"Carlos Condit doesn't back down from any man. If the UFC asks us to fight Rory MacDonald, Carlos will take the fight."

MacDonald's sole career loss occurred at UFC 115 in front of his home crowd. After dominating the first two rounds agaisnt the former WEC Welterweight Champion, he faded and Condit finished the fight with just seven seconds remaining.

Condit has a reputation for accepting difficult fights and rising to the occasion. He defeated MacDonald in his home country, traveled across the pond to knock out Dan Hardy in from his faithful supporters and while he came up short this past month, was willing to battle UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre in his backyard of Montreal in the main event of UFC 154.

UFC President Dana White expressed interest in creating the fight, mentioning that he "loves it" when fighters call each other out and make his and Joe Silva's jobs easier.

Do you think the rematch is next in line for both men, Maniacs? After seeing the new and improved Rory MacDonald at UFC on Fox 5, would Condit be able to handle "Ares" this time around?
