“Red King” previously made a point to explain that he believes Robbie Lawler may have been on performance enhancing drugs during their battle. Now, Rory has come forward to elaborate on his opinion.
In an interview with MMA Fighting, MacDonald offered his opinion on Lawler’s condition in their fight. Here is what MacDonald had to say:
“He never slowed down. I would hurt him and his output was high, high, high and he never really lost power and endurance. He just kept the pace and kept the power no matter how hurt or tired he was. He always was recovered very fast. It made me very suspicious.
“Obviously, I think Robbie is a tank of a person. He’s got that fire and that will and the rage and that anger in him that burns and pushes him through those hard moments. He’s an absolute warrior. I’m not disagreeing with that. But I do believe he was taking some sh-t.”
Rory MacDonald finished his thoughts on the matter be adding:
“I’m totally not crying about it. If you’re gonna ask me, do I think Robbie Lawler takes performance-enhancing drugs? Absolutely, I do. And I absolutely think he was on something when we fought.”
