UFC Signs Undefeated KOTC Champ Rory MacDonald

Rory MacDonaldUndefeated Canadian welterweight Rory MacDonald has signed a four-fight deal with the UFC, joining the promotion’s deep 170-pound roster.

MacDonald’s signing was today announced on The Underground, with his Octagon debut expected early next year.

MacDonald (9-0) has competed exclusively for King of the Cage since 2006, capturing the promotion’s World and Canadian lightweight titles before moving up to welterweight in his most-recent bouts. “The Waterboy” has earned stoppages in all of his fights, securing five submissions and four knockouts, including a second-round KO of former light heavyweight champ Nick Hinchliffe in September.

The signing follows last week’s four-fight deal with KOTC welterweight champ Mike Guymon.
