MacDonald stops French, unifies KOTC 155-lb. titles

Rory MacDonald, at the age of 19, calls himself both the King of the Cage World and Canada lightweight champion.

MacDonald, who entered as the King of the Cage Canada champ, captured the world title by defeating PRIDE and "Sengoku" veteran Clay French on Friday, Nov. 28 at King of the Cage "Grinder" in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

MacDonald floored French with a punch and finished with strikes for the TKO win at 4:26 of the second round.

French, who won the belt from "The Ultimate Fighter" winner Mac Danzig, held the belt for close to two years and never suffered a loss via (T)KO in his previous 19 fights.

MacDonald remained undefeated with a record of 7-0, while the H.I.T. Squad fighter French fell to 16-4.
