Rory MacDonald: “I’m Not A Fan Of Women’s MMA, I Just Don’t Watch It”

During a recent in-studio appearance on “The MMA Hour” at MMAFighting.com, UFC Welterweight contender Rory MacDonald made some interesting comments.

MacDonald elaborated on recently claiming to be a fan of Conor McGregor’s, saying that the Irish superstar’s technique is something he appreciates and wants to emulate.

“Yeah, I’m really impressed by him,” MacDonald said. “He’s on the cutting on some stuff I think. His movement and striking, it’s got my attention for sure. I want to emulate some of it for sure.”

MacDonald continued, “He’s doing the right thing to get noticed quick. But I think he would have done it anyway with his skill set. I’m more of a fan of his skills. The way he talks is the way he talks, but I’m more of a fan of his work in the cage. His movement, his confidence, and there’s a lot of little technical things he does with his striking that I think I could use. I like it. It’s new.”

The number two ranked UFC Welterweight contender also revealed the fact that he’s not a fan of Women’s MMA.

“I don’t know what it is,” he said. “I find it that they fight with a lot of emotion, and sometimes the technique gets thrown out the backdoor a lot of the time. Not all of the time. And don’t get me wrong, I respect them. They fight hard. It’s no joke. But it’s not something that I watch a lot.”

MacDonald did say there is one exception — “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.

“Ronda’s another one I think is really good,” he said. “Her judo’s really impressive, how she uses it in MMA. And I’m not a fan of women’s MMA. I just don’t watch it. She’s the only one that I’m like, wow, super-skilled. I like watching skilled fighters, and I think she uses her skill super-well.”

Rory MacDonald makes his Metamoris debut against J.T. Torres on the undercard of Metamoris 5: Sakuraba vs. Gracie on November 22, 2014.
