Nate Diaz Steps In To Take On Rory MacDonald at UFC 129


Rory MacDonald and Team Toshido

An undisclosed injury had forced James Wilks out of a proposed Welterweight bout with Rory MacDonald at UFC 129 at the Roger’s Center in Toronto.  MacDonald will now face Nate Diaz who is coming off a decision loss to the unbeaten Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 125.  This will be a much tougher opponent for the Canadian.

MacDonald last faced Carlos Condit at UFC 115.  There, Rory fell to the more experience Condit after winning the first two rounds on the judges’ scorecards.  MacDonald will hope to rebound from the first loss of his career against Diaz at UFC 129.

    Another tough fight for Rory… If he has another fight like the first 2/3 of the Condit fight he’ll win easily!

    lol i doubt he’ll win easily, no matter how he performs!! Diaz is one of the best fighters out there, and he should have been granted victory over Stun Gun. very tough fight for Rory.

    Gotta love our canadian mma fighters, but I don’t pick them to win just because they are from Canada.

    Diaz via triangle choke late in Rd 2

    I’m sorry anyone who thought Kim lost that fight is just a diaz nuthugger…so I cant take your prediction seriously AT ALL.

    and Rory will win through top control(almost impossible to finish a Diaz) and once again all the Diaz groupies will come out screaming robbery for like the 9th fucken time.

  5. Rory is going to finish Nate.

    If he thought the Stun gun was an annoying guy to fight, he’s going to REALLY be annoyed with Rory Mac smashes him.

    Condit would smash Diaz in 1 round.

    Stun Gun beat Diaz soundly.

    I actually like Nate Diaz. But Rory has too much for him.

    Just a note for future reference: it’s ‘Rogers’ not ‘Roger’s’. The corporate name is plural.
