Next week at UFC on FOX 8, Rory MacDonald hopes to add fellow welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger to an increasingly impressive list of defeated foes.

His current four-fight win streak includes a 2011 encounter with the resurgent Mike Pyle, and you can now watch the UFC 133 fight in its entirety.

For MacDonald, who suffered a TKO loss to Carlos Condit in his second UFC fight, the Pyle performance really put the Canadian youngster on the mat and assured additional big-name opponents would follow.

Watch the fight above, and then catch MacDonald (14-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) and Ellenberger (29-6 MMA, 8-2 UFC), who are respectively ranked No. 6 and No. 3 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/ MMA welterweight rankings, on July 27 in a FOX-televised co-headliner at UFC on FOX 8.
