Rory MacDonald vs. Carlos Condit 2? 'Natural Born Killer' says 'I'm in'

If you call them out, they will come. Former division number cone contender Carlos Condit is being paged to the Octagon by Rory MacDonald and is apparently already en route.

Wow, Rory MacDonald really is the second coming of Georges St. Pierre.

Despite a convincing unanimous decision win over a former 170-pound champion, "Ares," just like his friend and training partner at TriStar gym, wants to fight an opponent coming off a loss.

Bitter contender is bitter.

Following his destruction of B.J. Penn last Saturday night (Dec. 8, 2012) at the UFC on FOX 5 event, which emanated from the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, MacDonald called out Carlos Condit during his post-fight interview, asking for the opportunity to avenge his technical knockout (TKO) loss to the former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) kingpin back in June 2010.

When he was just 20 years old.

That's fine with Condit, who likely lost the first two rounds of their previous encounter before roaring back in the final frame to steal the fight with just seconds remaining. His response to the gang at UFC Tonight when learning of the challenge? "I'm in."

Short and to the point.

"The Natural Born Killer" is licking his wounds following a five round unanimous decision defeat to St. Pierre at the UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) event last month in Montreal. It was just his second loss since joining the UFC in April of 2009 and Condit is still considered one of the top fighters in his division.

But does this fight do anything for MacDonald ... or the fans?

Perhaps MacDonald should abandon his personal vendetta and call out Johny Hendricks -- also 14-1 -- to help keep "Bigg Rigg" busy while St. Pierre finishes what he started with Nick Diaz, just as soon as the former Strikeforce champ satisfies his drug suspension.

Who wants it?
