UFC welterweight contender Rory MacDonald is currently preparing for his #1 contenders match with former Strikeforce title challenger Tyron Woodley, which goes down this June at UFC 174 in Vancouver, Canada.
The bout serves as the co-main event for UFC 174 and will determine the next challenger for newly crowned welterweight champion Johny Hendricks.
After he defeats “T-Wood,” Rory wants to face “Big Rigg” for the title in either Toronto or Montreal, as he told MMAJunkie in a recent interview:
“When I beat Woodley, hopefully [I get a title shot] in the fall or winter in Toronto or Montreal,” MacDonald said. “Hendricks is a great fighter. I have a lot of respect for him. He’s definitely a good fighter, and I’m excited to see him in the future.”
“I’m striving to be a champion in the welterweight division,” MacDonald said. “I don’t want to fill Georges’ shoes. That’s an impossible task. I don’t want to be Georges. I want to be myself. I want to represent my style of martial arts and my own personality.
“Georges was probably the greatest champion ever, and he’s been a great person for me to learn from, train beside and watch fight over the years. He’s a model for Canadian fighters, and I just hope I can be as dominant as him in the cage.”
UFC 174 takes place June 14 live from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The event is headlined by a flyweight title fight between champ Demetrious Johnson and challenger Ali Bagautinov.
