MacDonald Is Ready To Reign Over Welterweight Division

Rory MacDonald: 'I'm ready to win the title and defend it'
By Damon Martin, foxsports.com
The day Rory MacDonald arrived in the UFC and made short work of Mike Guymon in his debut, the young Canadian was already being hailed as the future of the welterweight division.

Eventually, MacDonald teamed up with coach Firas Zahabi at the Tristar gym in Montreal where he began working alongside former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre, and it didn't take long for him to become the heir apparent to the fighter most widely considered as the greatest 170-pounder of all time.

But through all the hype, compliments and accolades heaped upon MacDonald, he was always well aware that talk doesn't win fights and he would have to walk a long, arduous road if he ever wanted to live up to all the expectations that were laid at his front doorstep when he debuted as a 20-year-old fighter in the UFC.
