Rory MacDonald (15-2) hails from Kelowna, British Columbia and is 6-2 in the UFC. After winning five consecutive UFC bouts, MacDonald lost his most recent bout at UFC 167 against Robbie Lawler by Split Decision.
Like MacDonald, Demian Maia is coming off a loss in his most recent fight. At UFC Fight Night 29, Jake Shields defeated Maia in a five round split decision. It was Maia’s first loss since moving down from Middleweight, where he once challenged Anderson Silva for the UFC Middleweight title.
