Rory MacDonald vs Demian Maia full fight video preview online for UFC 170

With Georges St. Pierre on an indefinite hiatus, the welterweight division is wide open for fresh contenders to the title. That includes Rory MacDonald and Demian Maia, who will square off in a featured bout at tonight's (Sat., Feb. 22, 2014) UFC 170: "Rousey vs. McMann" pay-per-view (PPV) event from Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.


"Now that Georges is not the champion, it definitely takes pressure off me. I'm focused on winning my next fights and getting that belt. That's all I really see in my near future. ... I plan on destroying him when I walk in there that night. I don't really care about his jiu-jitsu pedigree. This is a fight, and I'm going to knock his head off. With the performance I'm capable of, I'll have the title shot."


"After I fight against Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman, and some guys like Mark Munoz, I was much smaller than those guys. Everybody's taller, everybody's strong. So if I would drop to welterweight, I would have more advantage. Welterweight is my natural weight class. ... Everything depends on my next fight and it depends on my performance in the next fight. The day I will be fighting Rory, to me, in my mind, it's like the last day of my life." will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 170 fight card, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX Sports 1-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
