"I don't really care. It doesn't really bother me either way, I don't really care about the disrespect or whatever. I just get in there and fight my fight. If they suffer, they suffer. I don't really care if they're nice or if they're an a--hole."
-- Rory MacDonald has seemingly adopted the Ivan Drago-inspired attitude for his mixed martial arts (MMA) endeavors, informing reporters (right here), as well as his UFC on FOX 8 opponent Jake Ellenberger, all the disrespect and trash talk has no effect on him or his gameplan, which is to make his opponents "suffer" on fight night. He doesn't discriminate, whether he has been labeled a "fake" and "nothing special" or praised as the "next big thing" at Welterweight. Indeed, it's all the same to the young Canadian regardless if they're an "asshole" or the nicest person on Earth. With ice running through his veins, combat sports fans have to wonder if "The Juggernaut" lip service is more to promote the co-main event at KeyArena in Seattle, Wash., on July 27, 2013, and less about gaining a psychological advantage over his emotionless dance partner.
