In an interview with MMA Junkie, Rory MacDonald says that you can expect a more violent side of him when he makes his Bellator debut against Paul Daley at Bellator 179 at The SSE Arena in London. It happens this Friday and airs on Spike via tape delay. Here are highlights:

On Daley questioning his heart: “I know I have a strong will, and to break (me) down you have to push me very far. I just don’t think he’s going to be able to push me in that direction. I think it’s going to be me pushing him to quit.”

On being focused: “I’m there for war. I’m not there for any accolades or anything like that. I’m war-bound, and that’s where my mind’s at. Right now it’s (about) Paul Daley. Once I get through him, I’ll take on the champion at that time. But I’m focused 100 percent for this Friday.”

On what fans can expect: “They’re going to see an action-packed fight. And they’ll see a very violent version of myself pushing the fight and putting this guy away, eventually. I think I can give Paul troubles in any aspect of mixed martial arts, even though he is a specialist in the kickboxing department. I think he’s got a lot to deal with in me, so I think that’s the biggest threat.”
