Mike Pyle Vs Rory MacDonald at UFC 133
 
Quote:

The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Monday added a welterweight showdown to the UFC 133 fight card planned for Aug. 6 in Philadelphia.

“Welterweight standouts Mike ‘Quicksand’ Pyle and Rory ‘The Water Boy’ MacDonald have verbally agreed to fight at UFC 133 in Philadelphia,” said UFC president Dana White.

Pyle (21-7-1) has been around the block a few times, fighting for most of the top promotions in the world at one time or another. He got off to a rocky start when he was finally called to the Octagon losing two of his first three fights.

He has since reeled off three straight victories, handing Englishman John Hathaway his first defeat, and sending Ricardo Almeida into retirement.

MacDonald (11-1), at 21 years of age, is 14 years younger than Pyle, but has accomplished a great amount of success, having fought professionally for six years already.

Rising through the ranks of King of the Cage, MacDonald is 2-1 in the Octagon. He fell short to Top 10 welterweight Carlos Condit, despite getting off to a strong start. MacDonald bounced back at UFC 129 with a dominant victory over Nate Diaz, tossing him all over the cage floor.

A light heavyweight bout between former champion Rashad Evans and rising contender Phil Davis is currently slated to headline the UFC 133 fight card in Philly.

Pyle is not a can and we've already seen him dispatch of one young prospect in Hathaway but i really can't see him beating Rory MacDonald. I'm going with someWaterboy strength slams and some brutal GNP to set up a RNC sub win for Rory Mac.

its like Deja Vu!

Lol you win by 1 minute.

Mike Pyle is going to get worked. I wonder if this is a PPV fight or not :confused02: I'm thinking not, especially if Aldo/Mendes materializes, but I would be more likely to buy a PPV just to see Rory smash another opponent.

I would be VERY surprised to see McDonald take Pyle down at all, let alone hit some 'Waterboy strength slams'. Unfortunately I see it as a bad match up for McDonald - Pyle takes a UD IMO.

Pyle is definitely not beating another prospect because Rory actually has good wrestling.

Hathaway has good wrestling, quite possibly better then Story. Rory Mac has better though and I actaully find this an intersting matchup.

Hang on wait i thought Pyle was fighting Koscheck or am i missing something.

Kos can't fight until December or something, I doubt anyone wants to wait that long.

This is perfect, and more importantly perfect timing!

If rory comes out uninjured, then we can expect him on the Decemeber card in Montreal. If he gets past Pyle then another step up in rankings would make sense..

Top 10?

Interesting fight, picking Rory but Hathaway beat a much better opponent in Diego going into his fight with Pyle and Pyle derailed him big time.
