Rory MacDonald expects he and Robbie Lawler to “fight another couple of times” in the future

By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

“I wouldn’t be surprised at all if me and Robbie fight another couple of times. I really don’t know how much time he has left in his career, but I know I have many fights left at the top of the sport. If he’s still around in a few years, I wouldn’t be surprised if we fight multiple times.”

-Rory MacDonald talks to about his feud with Robbie Lawler and why they might fight a few more times before their careers are through.

Penick’s Analysis: With how insane the first fight was, a rematch would be absolutely welcome, and if that fight can even come anywhere close to the drama and magic of that first bout it would be another special fight in its own right. Having an extended feud would be great to see play out provided MacDonald got a win of his own in there, and if he beats Stephen Thompson Saturday night and sticks around in the UFC after that, he may get his shot a lot sooner than later.
