Maybe it will teach him to fight with more urgency in his next bout. His past two fights in particular weren't great performances.

You've never seen him fight then, because no one who has a brain would say that seriously.

I like Rory but he doesn't have the qualities of a champ. His attitude is not great at all.

He definitely has the talent just needs to mentally put it together. We will see how he deals with Maia if he's smart he will keep his distance and out strike him which he's capable of doing. But I could also see Maia doing to him what he did to story and Fitch who are good grapplers in their own right. I just don't think Rory has the grappling shields does to compete with Maia on the ground

I think he comes back stronger after his last fight.

P4P he is overall a class above Bisping, but I just don't think he'll ever be champ with Condit and Hendricks around.

He's competitive with them he just loses his aggression in those fights and he did still beat jake. Until I see more consistency from him against top fighters I won't consider him a real contender. I believe he stumbles against Maia and gets tapped

after his last two fights, the hype in this guy has already sizzled. made me think he was a bit overrated. he's a young buck though, he still has time to be the destroyer they made him out to be.

Rory had his chance and is still young, so he can fight his way back into contention quickly.
