But no, he conviced himself to be some sort of white and nerd Mayweather, and get punished for it.

Jones has this tendency too, but usually when the situation gets even a little bit problematic he use his wrestling (with Gus was obviously different due to TDD).


Did he say something about in post fight conference?

What do you think?

(I still think that he is a top 5 WW)
Agreed with most of this.

I think the world of Rory's skills but he absolutely deserved to lose this fight. His striking is solid but to go in there trying to be a boxer against someone like Lawler who has been knocking people out since Rory was in grade school was pure stupidity. I thought Rory would sub him, very happy to be wrong since I'm a big Lawler fan.

Easy fight? Robbie has been around forever.. Has ALWAYS been a dangerous striker, and has been on a roll since coming to the UFC. He had all the momentum needed to be a legit threat to Rory.

I did think Rory would win, but am not shocked at the outcome.

Rory lost because Lawler neutralized all his best weapons, he neutralized his jab, his top game and his GnP. Rory had nothing for Lawler.

I dont know what to think about Weirdo.

The entrance with the worst music ever, that Dylan Klebold looking and the fact he started to act like Van Damme inside the octagon.. Yep, he is really that weird ;\

Rory has to get back to the ground and pound.
