Rory MacDonald doesn't believe that he's been the same man since Carlos Condit TKO'ed him in Vancouver at UFC 115. MacDonald may have taken the first two rounds of the contest but it would end with 'The Natural Born Killer' finishing things with only 7 ticks remaining. Condit pulverized Rory Mac's face with punches and elbows until the referee had to save 'Ares' from any further damage, damage that he may not have been able to come back from.
Since this night MacDonald has been obsessed with Condit. This loss, that round, it's the only blemish on his otherwise perfect career. Even after beating a legend in B.J. Penn this past Saturday Night, these are the first words that came out of Rory's mouth in his post-fight interview -
There's a guy that humiliated me a couple of years ago, and i want my revenge. Carlos Condit, I want a rematch, accept my challenge. Let's do it in March, in my home territory again, and I'm gonna get my revenge.
So what does Condit have to say about all of this. How about two words - "I'm in." Carlos doesn't mind heading into enemy territory so expect this fight to be made for the UFC's visit to Canada in March. How would a GSP vs. Nick Diaz main, Rory MacDonald vs. Carlos Condit 2 co- main event sound to you guys?

Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald
For Matt Brown, Rory MacDonald, and Alexander Gustafsson, it was a night to remember. However, Mike Swick, BJ Penn, and Shogun Rua all had nights to forget Saturday night, and questions remain as to what’s next for each.
