Rory MacDonald Made a Statement at UFC on FOX 5

After picking apart former UFC champion BJ Penn on Saturday night at UFC On Fox: Henderson Vs. Diaz, Rory MacDonald made a plea for Carlos Condit.

"I want my revenge," MacDonald said. "Carlos Condit, I want a rematch. Accept my challenge."

MacDonald (14-1) requested a fight with Condit, the former interim UFC welterweight champion, for March. Condit defeated MacDonald via TKO back in 2010.

Since the loss, MacDonald has won four consecutive, including his near-flawless performance over Penn. The Canadian used his 76.5-inch reach to his advantage, landing jabs, hooks and elbows to the face of "The Prodigy."

"I told BJ after the fight he is one guy I really, really looked up to growing up. He's a hero to me," MacDonald said. "But anytime I step inside this Octagon, I put that aside."

Condit was defeated by Georges St-Pierre in a unification match last month.
