I guess it is what it is. This is a massive gift to Tarec, for if he wins, it would probably catapult him into the top 5. Where would that leave Rory? From being next for a title shot to being at least 1 fight away?
Nevertheless, I think Rory takes it without too much trouble.
Saffiedine: Rory MacDonald has no kickboxing, won't be able to take me down
From his conversation with Submission Radio:
"You are as good as your last fight, right? So when I watch his fight against Tyron, you know he did good, nothing to take away from him, but while I was watching that fight, man I was like 'man I can beat that guy.' The way he moves, the way he throws his punches, the way he set up his kicks, the way he sets up take downs, you know I truly believe I have the skills and the mindset to beat him, and that is one of the reasons I asked for that fight as well. And you know, he's a technical fighter, he can keep the same pace as the fight goes on, he has no kickboxing, his kicks are okay, his wrestling's not bad, but I don't think he's going to be able to take me down. And I think you know, I match up pretty well with him as far as technique. If I've got a good game plan, and I have a pretty good idea of what I'm gonna do, If I stick to it, I'm pretty sure I'm going to get the W. And you know after that W, definitely that will put me right there in the mix."
And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
I believe Saffiedine has a real good chance as well. I like Rory, but I love the mix up and I'm pulling for Tarec.
