Rory MacDonald: 'I Don't Want to Be a Superstar'
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.15.2014



Rory MacDonald spoke last night following his win over Tyron Woodley at UFC 174. Check out the highlights:

On being considered a star: "I want them to like me, but I don't want to be a superstar. I just like to fight and hopefully I'll be a dominant champion and represent Canada well."

On his win over Woodley: "I wanted to get in there, I wanted to mix it up and I wanted to stay busy. I wanted to close the fight, I came in really good shape and I was looking for the finish tonight."

On his performence: "I think this is probably my best performance of my career so far. I've got to watch the tape, but the feeling I have right now I'm pretty happy right now. Except closing the fight I didn't get the finish, but things went well. A lot of credit has to go to my coach Firas Zahabi and the Tristar gym. I think I'm falling into a groove and I don't know, something's clicking."

On a possible title shot: "I like to fight. If I wait a year for a shot, if someone gets injured or maybe they forget about me. I like to fight, so I'll just continue fighting if I have to wait. I want to be clear that I want that. I just wanted to say I respect the decision of the UFC. There's two guys ahead of me, but if that fight's a stinker I'll be ready."
