“I would fight him,” MacDonald said about facing Diaz. “(He comes
back ) in February, and I might be ready to fight in like March or
something like that. He might be my next fight after B.J., you never
know how it works.”
Diaz has never been a quiet one when speaking his mind about
potential opponents, and that includes UFC welterweight champion Georges
St-Pierre, who is one of MacDonald’s teammates.
The talk doesn’t motivate MacDonald to face Diaz, however, it’s more
about the challenge of the fight. As a matter of fact, MacDonald gets
why Diaz says what he says.
“I don’t think there’s a target on people who talk. That’s the fight game, you’ve got to pump up the fights,” MacDonald stated.
