UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald likely caught the eye of a number of viewers with his dismantling of surefire UFC Hall of Fame fighter B.J. Penn last night at UFC on FOX 5. The win was MacDonald’s fourth in a row and improved his overall record to 14-1, adding to past victories over the likes of Mike Pyle, Che Mills, and Nate Diaz.
Though MacDonald has called for a rematch with Carlos Condit, the only opponent to have beaten him, another name has emerged as a possible opponent for the soft-spoken, vicious 23-year old in the form of Josh Koscheck. The former title-contender took to Twitter shortly after MacDonald’s win over Penn, throwing his name into the mix by challenging the young Canadian.
“Maybe Rory should fight me??? I doubt the UFC would want to see him get his ass kicked,” wrote Koscheck on Twitter.
Koscheck was thought to be fighting Nick Diaz in February but it now appears Diaz will instead face champion Georges St-Pierre at some point in the near future. As such, the 17-6 Koscheck is available, providing an opportunity for MacDonald to display his talent against another highly regarded foe if a clash with Condit doesn’t materialize.
