The sweat that Rory MacDonald barely broke in throttling BJ Penn last weekend wasn’t even wiped off MacDonald’s forehead before he called for a rematch with the only man alive who claims a win over him.
UFC president Dana White said the sequel interested him and the promotion would look to make it a reality. The third piece to the puzzle, former interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit (Pictured), has now also given the green light with just two pimple words.
“I’m in,” Condit revealed to FUEL TV’s UFC Tonight.
It was reported that Condit believes the rematch makes plenty of sense and he would love to give fans what they want.
In their initial encounter at UFC 115, MacDonald appeared to take the opening two frames against Condit. However, “The Natural Born Killer” rallied to TKO the then-20-year-old with just seven ticks remaining in their June 2010 scrap.
MacDonald has since rattled off four straight wins, emerging more impressive in each outing. Condit is victorious in three of his last four, but lost a title unification bout to welterweight king Georges St-Pierre last month.
