    Did Nate have any success in that fight? I know there was a couple of good looking slams, but can't remember much other than that

    Yeah, he did good in the first, then Rory switched up to a more wrestling-heavy game and took over.

    It was really one-sided. Nearly as much as Diaz title fight against Benson Henderson.

    The size and strength discrepancy was ridiculously in favor of MacDonald and Diaz had no answers once Rory got ahold of him.

    IIRC, a couple of 10-8s on the scorecards.

    There's a reason Nate went back to Lightweight after that, if Conor hangs around at 170 it's only a matter of time until that happens to him.

    First two rounds were kinda close with Rory clearly winning, iirc.


    Third round was a blow out

    Rory didn't want to taste the
    stand up from what I remember...
    I mean, against a Diaz... there's
    not really a need to.

    At that point, his jab was not as
    good as it is now, and likely, Diaz'
    was better. The ragdolling should
    almost be expected. Mcdonald is
    about as big a WW could get. And
    he actually used a grappling heavy
    attack early in his career.


    Imo, fights like this one, and the
    DHK fight, only reinforce my
    opinion about Nate being an elite
    fighter. Lesser fighters would've
    been finished by both of those WW
    titans.

    That was a fight that drew a lot of attention to Rory's grotesque bacne and physical strength with steroid accusations coming soon after from BJ Penn.

    It was pre USADA.

    It also sent Nate back to 155.

    And then BJ took the worst beating of his life, while VADA tested.

    He needs to be able to breathe properly through his nose before he can come back. His nose was literally shattered.

    This. Nate looked ok until wrestling started.

    Today Rory would blast Nate.

    And Victor Conte says your gains from a steroid cycle can last up to 9 months.

    Looking forward to keeping a track of Rory's results in the USADA era, I fear his career may be over.

    We shall wait and see.
