Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Heads Up, Taters: Now’s Your Chance to Win a (Potentially Quite Awkward) Day in the Life of Rory MacDonald!

If there’s anything we’ve learned about UFC welterweight contender Rory “Mini Rush” MacDonald over the past few years it’s that he loves to fight and he loves to shop. And now thanks to his sponsor, Ecko, you can join him for a little of both!

Cool, right? Well, yeah, but also…kinda strange. We guess it really depends on what you bring to the table.

Because if you, your buddy that you get to bring and Rory, like, totally click, you’ll be sure to have fun during this day of “private” training and shopping with “Ares.” Hell, you guys will probably all stay in touch afterwards and tell inside jokes over Skype once a week while eating popcorn. On the off chance that doesn’t happen, however, it might get a lil’ awkward for some non-athlete to have a private training session with a world class fighter and then, because this is totally something that lots of strangers do together, go clothes shopping together at an Ecko store.

Does Rory watch you shop? Do you watch him shop? Will there be a montage of one of you trying on different outfits while the other approves or disapproves? Also, R-Mac doesn’t seem that lively and verbose from interviews with strangers that we’ve seen, so is talking kind of out of the question? So many questions about this wonderful day to come.

Seeing the inside of TriStar gym would be dope, no doubt, as would meeting MacDonald. But the poster for the sweepstakes almost seems to be designed to emphasize how self-consciously weird this day could turn out to be. And a max out of $250? Come on, Ecko. What’s that going to cover, a winter coat and half a t-shirt? Certainly not a neon orange tux, that’s for sure.

It’s not like we’d complain about a free flight to beautiful Montreal, free training and “meal,” it just seems like this could all quickly devolve into an awkward conversation that is forcibly extended over an entire day.

“Soooo, what was it like beating up B.J. Penn?”

“It was…*stares out window*fun.”

We encourage free-thinking here at CP, however. So, head over to to enter to win if you’d like, Taters.

But if you do and win, make sure to write and tell us how it went. Our fingers are crossed that Jake Ellenberger enters and wins, though.

I am going to enter in sincere hopes that I win. Because I will Diaz that luncheon but it would keep anyone else from having to go through that.

I don't know what "Eko" is, but if it has gravy fries, Molson and flannel, I'm in.

To be fair to Rory, he is from Kelowna BC. Kelowna and Vernon are really weird fucked up places. They are relatively small (although relatively large for Canada) but inexplicably fucked up. They are in the north end of the Okannagan valley which is one of the nicer and warmest parts of BC on a huge lake. There are a lot of rich people, wineries, fruit orchards and retired people. It should be nice. For some reason the area is also overrun with biker gangs, drugs, drug addicts, and one of the largest groups per capita of angry aggressive people I have ever seen in my life.

Rory mac definitly has bodies in his basement, he is a fucking freak, he was on a segment of mma uncensored and he seemed so fucking weird I can guarantee dudes a serial killer

This whole contest ends with the winner and his buddy hacked up and crammed into Rory's Dahmer-esque basement freezer.
Notice that the final line says "meal." It means that Hannibal MacDonald will eat your liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

I really hope this is a joke. I mean, why don't they just make it spend a day with a piece of cardboard?
