    His only losses where against Condit and Lawler and he dominated all 3 fights until he got caught. In my eyes, he is technically undefeated.

    Rory has never been an underdog in the UFC and would still be the favorite against Condit and Lawler if they ever fight again.

    Actually, Rory would be the favorite against any current welterweight because he would beat any of them most of the time. Therefore, he is the best.

    It doesn't matter who has the belt, we all know The Red King is one of the uncrowned ones along with Aldo, Khabib, Anderson, Jones and Cain.

    He lost to Lawler twice. He had two chances to beat Lawler and came up short in both. Great fighter but let's be realistic.

    Lawler dominated the 3rd round of Lawler - McDonald 2 until he got caught. In my eyes, he technically won the round.

    Why not Condit, then? Rory got FINISHED in both of those fights.

    He's a truly great fighter but I don't think you really have a leg to stand on here.

    That said, WAR RORY!!!

    He has the potential to be the crowned king.

    So he lost to the same underdog twice. Not the best argument. lol

    He is very good though. He just hasn't been able to reach that top level. If not for Lawler there's a good chance he'd have won the belt at some point.

    Some of you need to rewatch the fights. Rory made both Condit and Lawler look like amateurs.

    Be honest: who would you favor in a MacDonald vs. Lawler III fight?

    So he failed to meet expectations twice.

    Some "King," huh?

    Rory is a great fighter, but this is next level delusional.
