Siyar Bahadurzada took the Rory MacDonald approach and applied it to MacDonald, calling out the fighter via Twitter recently. MacDonald let it be known after his win over BJ Penn that he wanted Carlos Condit.
I WANT RORY MACDONALD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bahadurzada continued, posting, "When I fight Rory, I promise you, it will either be a 3 or 5 round fight! I will not finish that fight on purpose! I'll torture him!" He even sent a message to Johny Hendricks, saying they could team up to face MacDonald and Georges St-Pierre. Reports have said that GSP wants Nick Diaz, not Hendricks, next.
Bahadurzada (21-4-1) earned a knockout victory in his UFC debut earlier this year, stopping Paulo Thiago in 42 seconds. He has won seven fights in a row since a loss to Jorge Santiago in 2008.
