Rory Macdonald Says War With Robbie Lawler Affected His Personality, Expects To Shine In Return At UFC Fight Night 89

“I was back to normal in five days besides my nose being broken for a while [after the Robbie Lawler fight]. I was training the next week. It was a very hard emotional fight with ups and downs in it. It affected my personality a little, but everything was for the best. That fight made me a stronger fighter and stronger person… I don’t think I’ve felt this focused in a long time. I feel happy doing it. Those factors will make me shine on Saturday night… If I end up staying with the UFC and I have a successful fight, I’ll definitely have something to say about [the title picture].”

-Rory MacDonald talked about the affect his war with Robbie Lawler had on him and his focus into UFC Fight Night 89 during an appearance on UFC Tonight on Fox Sports 1 this week.
