Even though he’s a veteran with several more fights that his opponent, Mike Pyle enters his UFC 133 fight against Rory MacDonald as an underdog.

Pyle looks for his 4th win in a row in the UFC, and hopes to establish himself as one of the top welterweights when he faces MacDonald on Saturday night.
