Kelowna, British Columbia’s Rory MacDonald has been signed by the UFC.  Rory’s signing was announced on his Facebook page and confirmed by his Team Toshido coach David Lea on the Underground Forum.  It was only a matter of time for the KOTC Lightweight world champion who has finished each of his nine opponents. 

The 9-0 twenty year old won the King of the Cage title by defeating veteran Lightweight Clay French.  His last fight was against Nick Hinchliffe at KOTC in September where he knocked out Hinchliffe in the second round.  MacDonald moved up to Welterweight for his last two fights, so it is unknown at this time if he will fight at Welterweight or move back down to Lightweight.

UPDATE:  MacDonald has a four fight deal with the UFC.  He will enter the Welterweight division.
