    Awesome fighter. Just re-watched parts of several of his bouts and he is exactly what the WW division of the UFC needs right now. Should be given an immediate title shot with T-Wood if he chooses. Also -- watch this interview, it's good:

    UFC is not interested to pay his worth

    Guy couldn’t keep his nose from getting maximum boops and crumbling in the final inning. That, coupled with a personality resembling a generic house plant, means he’ll never compete on the big stage again.

    Yes, I know I'm shallow as hell but these two jewels of absurdity made me want to forever see him brutally destroyed regardless of who he fought.

    Would love to see him back, with the added bonus that it would save him from this horrible idea of stepping in there with friggin Mousasi.

    I'd much rather see him in Bellator taking big fights and participating in tournaments than trying to figure out the current social media popularity contest of the UFC.

    DJ just fought so naturally his numbers have peaked. Also Rory has a much more charismatic personality than the current WW champ (sarc!), and would draw in more viewers.

    Does we need another gatekeeper?

    Even with high profile fighters defecting to other orgs, the UFC remains leaps and bounds above the competition.

    Rory wasn’t worth the price tag.

    Most people romanticize his persona using nothing but the Lawler fight but that’s a deceptive gauge.

    He might be out of GSP shadow...but he's in Bellator shadow now.
    Stuck in the promotion ruled by people with marketing ability of a potato.

    His only hope is to fight Chael Sonnen one day...and it might not help either

    He beat the current champ definitively. He's not a gate keeper. Do you even know his fighting history? He's as good as any WW post-GSP.

    What? An unconscious body has more charisma than Rory.

    Sorry, but the current WW Division is a joke compared to what it used to be. And MacDonald is as good as any WW in the post-GSP era. He would class the division up.
