UFC Fight Night 54’s Tarec Saffiedine: ‘I’ve analyzed Rory MacDonald and I know I can beat him’

MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC Fight Night 54 welterweight Tarec Saffiedine as he prepares for his upcoming main event bout against Rory MacDonald this Saturday (October 4, 2014) at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

The talented former Strikeforce champion is looking to make a huge impact in the UFC and he’ll put himself in serious title contention should he get past the toughest test of his career in MacDonald:

“I don’t look at the fact that Rory [MacDonald] beat Tyron [Woodley] but more how he fought. The way he uses distance, the way he throws kicks, punches, sets up his takedowns, uses ground and pound. I analyzed each every one of his movements and I know I can beat that guy and that’s why I asked for that fight.”
