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