$$$ on condit
wait... what... Rory is the favorite after getting finished in their first fight?..
Money on condit for sure... The beating Rory gave to a lightweight king past his prime has really been a blessing for MMA gamblers lol Rory has fooled the Vegas "experts".
how the fuck is rory a favorite
Rory is the favorite because he is the more skilled fighter at this point. Anyone with a set of eyes can see that.
Rory is the favourite because he dominated the first fight before getting caught...
Rory is the favourite because he ground Condit down years ago when he was a noob and now has continued to get better.
As good as Condit is, he hasn't made the gains Rory has in the same time frame.
sounds about right.
Oh shit wtf....bet on Condit. Wtf are those odds based on? Their respective last fight???
Rory will likely win this fight with takedowns and ground control...probably quite decisively. And despite my name I'm not a rory fan and I am a Condit fan.
Condit would need to get on top to win this fight, which Rory will make sure does not happen again.
yeah, luckily your too smart for them Vegas gambling 'experts'
Rory by TKO rd 2
GSP lost by armbar in the first round to Hughes and was the favorite going into their second fight. He was KO'd by Serra and was the favorite going into the second fight. Odds-makers know what they are doing.
i also think most view Macdonald as improving more than condit since the first fight which despite the finish was a close fight, most everyone sees rory winning if it went the finally 8 seconds.
It was a controversial stoppage and Rory took the first 2 rounds.
He was also only 21 at the time I think. A very young age where there will be rapid development/improvement.
Thats not to take anything away from Condit. We all know hes a beast. However all things considered, from a logical point of view it would make sense Rory is the favorite.
Money on nobody. Not betting on Condit and Rory is gonna be favorite in a lot of matchups, as he should be.
I actually think a small wager on Rory is a good idea. He will be way too much for Condit this time. Based on what? Rory has improved tremendously both physically and mentally. Add that with improvements in his game in all aspects. Defintely won't count Condit out though and hope he can pull something off. I think he definitely will need a finish.
Really? Rory definately won rounds 1&2, I don't think he "dominated" Condit. But get outta here with that til he got caught shit. Condit was tooling a gassed Rory
IDK what fight some of you watched, but the fight i saw between condit and rory, rory really didnt have anything on condit.
Sure rory has gotten better, but is it enough to beat a NBK out for blood? HELL F***ING NO!
Rory gets TKO'd again while doing his stupid shuffle BS. same round as before.
Did you watch the same fight I watched? All I saw were pointless takedowns that lead to Condit inflicting more damage that Rory. Then I saw Rory gas hard and Condit finish him (albeit controversially). Despite Rogan's commentary (which I generally enjoy), I saw nothing close to Rory dominating anything in that fight, unless of course you believe that takedowns are all that matter, in which case you'd probably make a fine NSAC judge.
All that said, it will be a very close fight this time around.
