Carlos Condit Vs. Rory MacDonald Likely For UFC 158

A welterweight rematch between Carlos Condit and Rory MacDonald is a go, according to UFC president Dana White.

White confirmed with MMAjunkie.com that the plan is for Condit-MacDonald II to take place this March from Montreal’s Bell Centre at UFC 158.

MacDonald (14-1) demanded Condit accept a rematch following his recent win over BJ Penn. Condit defeated MacDonald back in 2010 via TKO with seven seconds left in the third round.

Condit (28-6) is coming off a loss to Georges St-Pierre last month. The two battled to determine a unified UFC welterweight champion after “The Natural Born Killer” won the belt on an interim basis earlier this year over Nick Diaz.

UFC 158 has yet to be officially announced by the promotion, though it is expected to take place in Canada.

    I kind of disagree with this match up,I know rory wants it but if the ufc plans on going forward with gsp vs nick diaz I think a rematch between condit and kampman would have been a better matchup as well as rory vs johny hendrix,I know rory doesnt want to fight gsp but might as well build him as a contender in case gsp loses to diaz or anyone else,I know avenging a loss might build his credit but it wouldn’t have the same effect as beating hendrix who is coming off of a major win
