I like Tarec, but he has to get a solid win before thinking about Rory.

Huge step back for Rory, who is next in line for a title shot after the Brown-Lawler winner.

Rory should fight Lombard when Lombard heals up and then have the winner of that bout fight the winner of Brown-Lawler.

Well Tarec was the last Strikeforce WW champion and has a 5 fight win streak.

LOL No you can't Tarec.

Everyone can dream, but dude needs to beat someone impressively in the top 15 before even thinking he can even make that claim.

Romac > Tywood > Saffie

Rory would get a finish within the first 2 rounds.

Tarec would have a great price and I would max bet the fuck out of him.

The same type of stuff that works well for Anderson & Machida.


There are guys like Shogun & Weidman that ignore those type of games and pummel through.

I think Saffeidine is mentally strong like that and his text book, high MT guard with bombardment of low kicks will work well to outpoint Rory in the later rounds.

A 5-round fight favors Saffeidine, I think he beats most top 15 WW's in 5 round matches.

I agree, I think Tarec is a really bad match up for Rory
