Rory by domination and just being way better. Lawler is a likeable fighter though.
Yeah, the other guy bought up 'swag' which is a trite term.
Anyways, Rory seems to take things too personally to be considered someone who 'does not give a shit' - he clearly was rattled by BJ's chatter and several years later is still rattled by the beating Condit put on him:
“I was humiliated and embarrassed after that fight and I think about that fight all the time,” MacDonald said. “It haunts me. I really need to get past that chapter in my life.”
Now he's definately a top WW and a fantastic fighter, just not the 'Don't give a shit' / Satorial icon / finishing machine some people seem to think he is.
