    Manager: Carlos Condit willing to accept rematch against Rory MacDonald if UFC asks - MMAmania.com



    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.

    I think both fighters have improved a lot, if Condit can be competitive with GSP he can beat anyone, wonder if he'll be able to sweep Rory if he takes him down.

    This fight makes the most sense for both guys; gives Rory a huge name and avenges his only loss, while a win for Condit puts him right back up there in title contention.

    I agree. If they do fight I want it to be a 5 rounder. I want to see Condit put the cocky Rory in his place

    Pissed at Condit for not defending the interum title. Didn't care for the smug actions of Rory. So it's a lesser of two evils for me. Also the fact Rory won't fight GSP so that leads me to want Condit to win just because it's useless for Rory to win.

    Agree with everything.

    Rory is just being a bitch imo. You don't wanna fight Gsp? Go to mw, he is a huge ww and walks around at 200lbs. I'd like to see him face Weidman if he moves up.

    Actually it would be a "bitch" thing to do to want a fight against the guy who helped develop your career into what it is today.

    So instead you want him to move up a weight class when he has all kinds of good fights because he walks around at 200lbs like alot of the WW do and you want him to fight a guy who cuts to 185... yeah that makes sense

    I doubt many ww walk at 200lbs, even gsp I believe walks around 190lbs. What's the point in him detailing potential contenders if he's not gonna challenge for the title ? Just a cowardice thing imo. You feel comfortable and confident in your skillset to beat up on smaller opponents, why not test yourself where you can go for a title?
