Still one of the youngest competitors in the UFC, Michael McDonald made a big statement at UFC 145 as he knocked out former WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres in vicious fashion.

A huge uppercut floored the former champ and a few punches later and McDonald had possibly the biggest victory of his young career.

While he’s not one to ask for anyone to rank him or call for a title shot, McDonald is hopeful to gain some recognition for his work after such an impressive knockout over a well known, and well respected opponent.

Check out what else McDonald had to say in this interview following his win at UFC 145:
