It seems like forever ago when Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald faced each other in the Octagon for a second time. It was easily the best fight I have ever seen live, and the word "bloodbath" is an understatement.

The fight went five glorious rounds until the champion, Lawler, landed a perfect shot to MacDonald's probably already broken nose, and he went down.

I would be confident to say that this fight will go down as one of the top 10 in UFC history.

And get this... MacDonald thinks he'll fight Lawler a few more times. YUUUUUSSSS!

"I wouldn't be surprised at all if me and Robbie fight another couple of times," MacDonald told Fox Sports. "I really don't know how much time he has left in his career, but I know I have many fights left at the top of the sport. If he's still around in a few years, I wouldn't be surprised if we fight multiple times."

Here's a look back at the Lawler vs. MacDonald at UFC 189.

MacDonald is set to face Stephen Thompson at Fight Night Ottawa this weekend.

Lawler will face Tyron Woodley next at UFC 201 in July.
