UFC Welterweight contender Josh Koscheck called out Rory MacDonald on Twitter after the latter beat up B.J. Penn at UFC on Fox 5: Henderson vs. Diaz.

Perennial UFC Welterweight contender Josh Koscheck was quick to take to Twitter to throw down the gauntlet at up and coming star Rory MacDonald after the latter beat up former champ B.J. Penn at UFC on Fox 5: Henderson vs. Diaz. Here's Koscheck's tweet (he misspelled Rory but it's clear from the follow ups that he meant MacDonald and not, say Roy Nelson):

Koscheck last fought against Johny Hendricks in May where he dropped a split decision. He was expected to face Jake Ellenberger at UFC 151 in September but pulled out with a back injury even before that ill-fated card was cancelled.

Koscheck is currently ranked at #7 in the division in the Bloody Elbow Metarankings. MacDonald is ranked at #10.

MacDonald wants a rematch with Carlos Condit who beat him at UFC 110 in 2010.

I'd prefer to see MacDonald against Koscheck since MacDonald insists he won't fight teammate and divisional champion Georges St. Pierre, I see no reason not to put him in there against a top fighter like Koscheck despite Koscheck's non-viability as a title contender as long as GSP wears the belt.
