Carlos Condit at UFC 154 Weigh InsFollowing his win at UFC on Fox 5, welterweight Rory MacDonald made it very clear that he wants a rematch with Carlos Condit for his next trip to the Octagon.

Condit and MacDonald met at UFC 115 in 2010, and while the young Canadian won the first two rounds with takedowns and ground work, the fight was decided in the final stanza.

Knowing he was down on the judges’ scorecards, Condit came out and absolutely demolished MacDonald in the third round, getting the TKO stoppage with only seven seconds left in the fight.

Ever since that moment, two things have been a constant – Rory MacDonald hasn’t lost, and he also hasn’t stopped thinking about it.

“I was just laying there getting beaten on, my face looked like I was the guy from “The Goonies” after. I was embarrassed about my performance and how I held myself,” MacDonald said at the UFC on Fox 5 post fight press conference.

“It did a lot of damage and I don’t think I’ve been the same person since, so I want to get that back.”

The UFC also seemed interested in putting the rematch together, and now Team Condit has responded as well.

MMAWeekly.com reached out to Condit’s manager Malki Kawa, who just returned home from Seattle after another of his clients, Benson Henderson, fought at UFC on Fox 5.

When asked about a potential Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald showdown, he seemed more than interested in making it happen.

“Carlos Condit doesn’t back down from any man,” said Kawa. “If the UFC asks us to fight Rory MacDonald, Carlos will take the fight.”

One point of contention that will have to be decided however if the UFC opts to do the rematch is where it takes place.

Following his win over B.J. Penn on Saturday, MacDonald asked to face Condit in Montreal, where he trains and lives currently. Condit actually fought MacDonald in Vancouver the first time, which is just hours away from where the young Canadian actually hails.

So for the rematch, Kawa says that if MacDonald is gunning for Condit, why not make it happen in the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas.

For now, Condit is still resting and recovering from his last fight against Georges St-Pierre at UFC 154, and the promotion has yet to officially offer him any bout.

It seems likely however with both Condit and MacDonald interested, a rematch in 2013 could very well take place.
