    Dude is 31 and should be in the prime of his life but can’t get past Gleason Tibau. I know it was a robbery but still, he should be dominating an old dog like Tibau without controversy.

    It’s kinda sad how the game and chew you up and spit you out and you’re still not financially stable.

    He’s had years taken off his life from that 2nd Lawler fight for 59k. Makes you think right?

    Rory was never the same after Robbie melted his nose into a thousand pieces in a ridiculous war. They may have edited it out on Fight Pass, but I recall Rory convulsing in pain after falling over from that last nose shot.

    Ever since then he's been timid, reticent to engage or pressure and absolutely hates getting hit. I can't say I blame him. He's also had some leg injuries as well. In fight age, he's ancient.

    He still got robbed tonight.

    There's more to the story than age. Rory is nowhere near his fighting prime.

    rory was a bright young prospect that melted under the pressure of “he’s the next GSP”

    Look I dont think Rory is even the 2nd best fighter in that tourney but he CLEARLY won that fight. Its one of the worst decisions I've ever seen. I'm not sure if it will even still stand.

    People will bring up the Woodley fight as an argument that he's UFC championship quality.

    The UFC HAD to have given him some extra money under the table after that fight. It was FOTY and people still talk about it 6 years later.

    Well,lets fucking hope so. I dunno how many of those kind of fights a person can really have. You gotta really take care of yourself in between fights.

    Dude. 31 is not prime. Especially for someone like Rory who started in his teens and fought the very best from a young age.

    The majority of fighters that you see have success after their early thirties are the ones who didn't start until later.

    he's been fighting professionally since he was 16 so he's spent half of his life building up damage
