UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald says he would like to fight for the welterweight title after the champion is decided at UFC 171.

I think he should face the winner of Condit and Woodley and if he gets that one then give him the fight. I`ve never been sold on Rory until Saturday as he proved a lot in that fight.

Yepyepyepyeps!
Exactly what my friend and I were discussing earlier today. If Condit beats Woodley the rematch would be a perfect title eliminator

I'm still not sold on Rory. He beat Maia who virtually has no stand up. Secondly, it has only been one win since his loss to Lawler. He needs at least one more win to campaign for a title shot and that does not necessarily mean he should get it either.

If Condit wins. He gets a title shot.
Mcdonald should face Diaz or Brown

I think he should face either the winner of that fight, or the winner of Shields vs Lombard.

Although its possible that the winner of that fight will be next in line for Hendricks after he finishes with Lawler.

I really like the idea of Rory fighting in a #1 contender fight against the winner of the Lombard/Shields or Woodley/Condit fight...who ever has a better victory or is least hurt.

This is not a bad idea at all. Rory threw Nate around like he was disciplining a child. Let's see him take on the older brother! The trash talk would be amazing and no way does Diaz make a boring fight ever he will bring the fight to Rory like Lawler. If Nick got with Nate at Team Alpha Male we could see a whole new Nick Diaz. Help him fight off Rory's smothering grappling to make it a striking war! Would love Nick to comeback to this.

I agree with most of what you guys are saying. One more win and then he should get the shot. Condit and woodley are up there too, so is shields but he's gonna have trouble getting a shot just because of his fighting style.
