Rory MacDonald retained his Bellator welterweight title after fighting John Fitch to a draw and thus qualifying to the next stage of the welterweight Grand Prix where he is all set to fight Neiman Gracie at the Madison Square Garden on 14th June.

But during the post-fight interview, Rory MacDonald confessed to John McCarthy that he doesn’t have the drive to hurt people inside the Octagon anymore.

I don’t have that killer inside,” MacDonald said after Bellator 220, which took place at SAP Center in San Jose. “It’s really hard to explain. I hesitate a little bit now. I don’t know what to say. It wasn’t my best performance.

It takes a certain spirit to come in here and put a man through pain, and I don’t know if I have that same drive to hurt people anymore.” (H/T – Bloody Elbow)

However his future foe Neiman Gracie doesn’t believe what MacDonald said during the post-fight interview and said that the Canadian still wants to hurt fighters inside the Octagon.

It’s up to him (whether he wants to fight),” Gracie told MMA Junkie post-fight at Bellator 220. “I think he still wants to hurt people. I saw him trying to hurt Fitch pretty bad tonight. I think it’s bull(expletive).”

Fitch showed how to beat him, I think, and I’m different than Fitch is,” Gracie said. “If I take someone down I’m not going to stall in someone’s guard. I will go for the finish, and I will get a good position, and I will finish the fight on the floor. That’s the difference.”

I’m waiting for Rory now, and I’ll be ready,” Gracie said. “It’s not up to me. I hope he is (ready June 14). He’s the champion. I want to fight for the belt, so I hope he’s ready because I will be.”
