Rory MacDonald continued cementing his place as a “must see” talent in the welterweight division with his destruction of Che Mills at UFC 145. Put in the evening’s co-main event slot, MacDonald took the opportunity to shine and ran with it.
Here’s how we called the action last night:
Round 1 – Mills with some hard leg kicks early. Rory gets stung in the stand-up and he is forced to get the takedown to get out of the stand-up. Big right and a flurry of punches by MacDonald. Mills is bleeding and eating more punches. Mounted crucifix now and MacDonald is landing a lot of clean shots. Mills’ face is a mess. MacDonald is just destroying him now. 10-8 MacDonald
Round 2 – Leg kick by MacDonald and a quick easy single leg. MacDonald pounding away. MacDonald had the mount, Mills gave up his back. MacDonald pouring on the punishment again and Mills has nothing. Back mount and Mills is flattened out and getting pounded and it’s over. Rory MacDonald wins by TKO (punches), 2:20 of Round 2
