It was a rough first loss for young Canadian Rory MacDonald, who was up two rounds on former WEC champion Carlos Condit, before he got finished by TKO in the 3rd round.

MacDonald bounced back with a win over Nate Diaz at UFC 129 in his home country of Canada in April.

Now he’s poised to take on another veteran in Mike Pyle at UFC 133, and MacDonald has gotten past the disappointment of his first loss and believes he’s not only back on track, but better than ever before.

Check out Rory MacDonald as he talks about his return to action this Saturday night at UFC 133 against Mike Pyle
