Paul Daley: “Rory MacDonald talks of being a warrior, but he quit against Robbie Lawler”
“Didn’t he quit against Robbie Lawler? I’m pretty sure he quit in that fight. He quit the fight,” Daley said. “He talks of being a warrior and all of this, but he quit in a fight. Due to a broken nose or not, if you’re a fighter you do not quit.”
“I’m not worried about anything Rory has to bring. I don’t care about the statistics.. He hasn’t fought me and that’s it. I fought guys that have never been knocked out, and if you look at their records, I’m the guy that knocked them out.”
Daley, 33, was booted from the UFC after throwing an illegal strike against MMA veteran Josh Koscheck after their grudge match in 2010. MacDonald, who trains out of Quebec, Canada, left the UFC last year and will face ‘Semtex’ in his Bellator debut.
Bellator 179, which will feature MacDonald vs. Daley in the main event, takes place on May 19 at the Wembley Arena in London, England.
