Demian Maia vs Rory Macdonald being rumoured for UFC 161

There are some rumours down here about this fight and a couple twitters.... any info?


Would be an awesome match-up in my opinion.

If Rory won't fight the champion he should go somewhere where he is willing to fight the champion.

I hope it's true. Rory really needs a big step up in comp now. It's time to see if the hype is real.

That, and i just want to see someone school Rory from bell to bell.

OH MY GOD!!! I cant wait for this fight. This is the fight I wanted most from the WW division. Maia got this, he's going to stop the hype train which is Rory. Believe that.


I wouldnt have mind if this was the Co-Main event but if its the third fight for a card then thats awesome!!

I agree, Maia's trips and tosses are crazy good.

Awesome awesome fight if it happens.

Maia tearing through the WW division has made it one of the most intriguing divisions in the UFC, and a few years ago I'd have said WW was the least intriguing division in the sport (years of GSP and Fitch being head and shoulders above the rest of the division was so boring).

What did Rory do to piss off Dana?

They spent years building Rory up to throw him under the bus like this?

Guess the figured since Rory won't fight GSP, Maia could after subbing him.
