MANILA, Philippines – The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is setting up a rematch between Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit in 2013.

According to MMA Fighting, the UFC is looking at a March 16 fight date in Montreal.

MacDonald called out Condit after beating BJ Penn over the weekend.

Condit, who lost a unanimous decision to Georges St-Pierre last November, immediately agreed to a rematch.

Condit crushed MacDonald via technical knockout when they first fought in June 2010.

"I was humiliated and embarrassed after that fight," said MacDonald. "I think about that fight all the time. It haunts me, and I really need to get past that chapter in my life."

After the defeat, MacDonald rebounded to win four straight fights.
