Rory McDonald at UFC 129Former Cage Rage welterweight champion Che Mills earned ‘Knock Out of the Night’ honors in his UFC debut back in November, sending Chris Cope his walking papers with vicious knees and punches.  The win extended his streak to five fights and earned him a date with Rory MacDonald.

Rory MacDonald is considered one of the best welterweights in the UFC today.  A teammate of Georges St. Pierre, the 22-year old fighter is riding a two fight win streak that includes victories over Nate Diaz and Mike Pyle.

Mills came out aggressive early, landing hard leg kicks as he moved forward.  MacDonald countered with a takedown and displayed his dangerous ground game. MacDonald used vicious ground and pound to batter Mills, opening a cut over his right eye. The Canadian fighter finished the round strong with mount and back control.

MacDonald landed a single leg takedown at the start of the second round and never looked back.  Flattening out his opponent, he rained down hard clean unanswered punches that forced referee Mario Yamasaki to halt the fight.

“Che was a great opponent.  He didn’t get much respect in the media because of his lack of fights in the UFC,” said MacDonald.  “I’m very happy the way the fight went.”

“I want to be champion one day but I’m still very young.  One thing I lack is experience. This is what I love to do.”
