Rory MacDonald “Embarrassed” After KItchen Mishap

Rory MacDonald “Embarrassed” After KItchen Mishap

Rory MacDonald showed inside the Octagon, Demian Maia was no match for him this past weekend, scoring a decision victory at UFC 170.

Outside the cage, though, MacDonald was defeated by something else: an avocado.

After picking up his seventh UFC victory, MacDonald (16-2) discussed a kitchen incident that almost forced him to pull out of his fight in Las Vegas.

“I stabbed myself (while cutting an avocado),” MacDonald said. “It was pretty embarrassing. I couldn’t believe it.

“I thought I was going to have to pull out because you could easily hit a tendon.”

The Tristar fighter went to the hospital, got himself stitched up and checked out, saying, “everything’s fine and intact. I fought and everything’s cool.”

With the win, MacDonald got himself back on track after a decision loss to Robbie Lawler last year. He has dropped just two UFC fights in his career – to Lawler and former interim champion Carlos Condit.

    It’s always a fluke thing, almost always. Like the professional athlete that was out a few games (cant remember football or baseball) because his wife fixed pancakes and he sat down to eat them, and something popped. Or the dude who rubbed his head down with a towel and pinched a nerve in his neck.
