    Rory MacDonald accepts Tarec Saffiedine challenge if it gets him closer to a UFC title shot

    Speaking to "UFC Tonight," MacDonald said he's all for a fight against the last man to hold the Strikeforce welterweight title, as long as UFC matchmakers concur that it gets him closer to his much-desired title shot.

    "He thought the fight made sense for him but would leave it up to UFC," said UFC insider, Ariel Helwani. "If UFC thinks that fight gets him closer to a title shot, he's all for it."

    Hmmmmm, IMO Rory's win over Woodley puts him in a higher spot and I think that a Lombard matchup would make far more sense, since Brown/Lawler probably gets the next shot and they could be the next-in-line. I suppose Rory could take this bout but it's a little riskier and I don't see it as providing too much of an upside of taking this fight.

    Lombard is out indefinitely I think until they figure out if he needs surgery. Maybe Rory doesn't want to wait?

    Man, I just realized that between the injuries, existing bookings, and cutting Shields, the top 10 is completely unavailable right now aside from Tarec. Nuts.
