Though it wasn't the news that MacDonald was hoping for, a week after letting the news sink in MacDonald told UFC Tonight that he won't let it get him down.
"It's all good," MacDonald said. "I'm just gonna light up whoever is next. Like always."
UFC Tonight's Helwani also asked Hendricks' manager Ted Ehrhardt if the UFC had informed them that a trilogy with Lawler would be next.
"Not yet," Ehrhardt said.
