Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC’s Welterweight division is one of the best stacked divisions in the promotion, and although it has the legendary Georges St. Pierre dominating the title picture, there are several youngsters making their way through in the 170 lbs category.
And perhaps, the best talent among them is the young Rory MacDonald, who has been on the tear since his first defeat in the promotion since his first loss as a professional Mixed Martial Artist to Carlos Condit.
Many people feel the 24 year old is the heir apparent to the legendary Rush, one of the greatest fighters in the history of the UFC as well as in Mixed Martial Arts as a whole and having been under the tutelage of GSP himself, no other youngster has had such a smooth passage in the passage since its inception.
There is a firm belief that when St. Pierre loses or finally decides to hang up his fighting gloves, his protégé will come to the fore and take up the mantle left by his mentor as he tries to fill the void that will be left. But things rarely go according to plan in sports and with that loss to Condit; MacDonald realized that it wouldn’t be smooth sailing for him after all.
And though he managed to win his next five encounters with relative ease, the loss to Jim Lawler at UFC 167 came as quite a shock to the fans, but that was not the case for Rory.
According to the youngster, things were getting very easy with each fight and he felt that he could do no wrong and that made him let his guard down. And he admits the loss to Lawler was something he needed to get his focus back and fight with more concentration.
