It's impossible not to sense a sadistic streak in the 23-year-old Rory MacDonald (14-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) as he speaks about his upcoming fight with Jake Ellenberger (29-6 MMA, 8-2 UFC) at UFC on FOX 8.

MacDonald insists it's not personal when he said he sometimes feels the need to hurt someone badly in the cage. He said he won't know whether he'll try to do that to Ellenberger until the night of July 27, when they meet in the fight card's co-main event at KeyArena in Seattle.

Yet MacDonald said the last guy to talk trash to him – before Ellenberger decided to berate him on Twitter and in interviews – took more abuse than he might have taken had he elected to keep pre-fight interviews respectful...

I find this quote very similar to a certain one from fight club about wanting to destroy something beautiful.

"Sometimes, you just want to hurt someone and devastate their lives fast."-Rory MacDonald 2013

Rory is a DORK.

His silly moniker 'Aries' needs to change to URKEL.

I think Rory will mix it up better (ground/standing). If he can stop Jake, the bandwagon for Rory and a title fight will fill up fast. If Jake can mix it up, he can win this fight, but I expect him to only box and be a bit predictable for Rory.

Condit defeating Rory was a fluke as result of Condits experience and durability, truthfully I think Rory has been the top guy at 170 since he stepped into the octagon. I can't see Ellenberger even making much of a fight out of this, he's got one advantage and that's about his only chance, totally expect Rory to finish Ellenberger.

only way rory fights for the tittle is if GSP isnt holding it. they both have stated they won't fight each other, one of them needs to lose or the division will become stagnant with the number 1 and 2 guy not fighting each other.

im not a big fan of his, but i do think that he is a very tough fight for ellenberger. i think rory is a legit threat for any of the top WW's. that said, i will be picking ellenberger by 2nd round stoppage, but i think it will be a close fight until then

Yo Rory, your "Pop" Marilyn Manson called and said, "Son, please don't start wearing trench coats."

the Juggernaut will walk away with the decision, ppl forget that he's ncaa wrestling champ..and that Condit fight was no fluke..Rory lost his focus and mentality, something Jake doesnt do..cuz that was a well placed knee by Kampmann..Condit came back and tko Rory..Jake boxing is a notch above Rory..cuz who has he really ko'd?..Jake got power in both hands and quick..i aint a Rory hater, i actually dig his personality..we need a bad guy in mma, here and there..but this is the fight game and i give this one to Jake...
