MacDonald says it's not an athleticism contest though...
Tyron Woodley spoke with MMAjunkie and said that he was quite amused when Rory MacDonald‘s coach said that MacDonald was more athletic than him. Woodley is set to face MacDonald at UFC 174.
Woodley said, "His coach on Embedded said he's more athletic than me. I've never laughed so much in my life. He can work as hard as he can. They can stab him with as much steroids and TRT and do whatever, but he'll never be more athletic than me. It's just a God-given gift. It's not that he's not athletic, but I'm probably the most athletic guy in the division."
MacDonald had his own thoughts, telling MMAjunkie that it doesn't matter who'se more athletic.
"He's definitely more muscular than me, and he's a very explosive guy," MacDonald said. "But this isn't an athleticism contest. This is martial arts."
