#1 Rory "The Red King" MacDonald will take on #2 Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson in a high stakes match up. If Thompson wins, it solidifies his position as a top contender in the welterweight division and mostly likely a shot a the title. The same could be said for Rory who is already ranked #1 and could get the winner of Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley.
What’s most interesting about this fight is the style matchup and what Rory MacDonald’s approach will be. We don’t know a lot about Stephen Thompson’s overall MMA game because he’s made short work of his opponents. However, the mistakes his opponents have made won't likely be made by Rory, in my opinion.
Should be an excellent fight and I’m looking forward to it. For further analysis on this fight please visit: http://www.rapidmma.com/2016/06/ufc-fight-night-89-macdonald-vs-thompson.html
