    Right on, I like that fight. Obviously means we're getting Hendricks vs Lawler 3 though if this fight happens.

    At this rate we might never see Rory fight for the title. Every time he gets 1 or 2 fights away they give him a Condit or Robbie to take his soul and set him 3-4 fights back.

    it's the right fight to make if Lawler fights Hendricks again, a proper contender fight. Hector has his chance early, but Rory should win handily. Especially if it's 5 rounds. Closer fight on paper if it's 3 rounds.

    Well, lets see if they still deny him a titleshot if he gets his 4th top 10 win.

    He already has more than the champ and the supposed challenger. SMH.

    Dangerous fight for Rory but certainly winnable.

    This makes sense to me. Rory should be fighting for the title right now but since rankings mean nothing and we have to watch Hendricks/Lawler again, put him against the person who would be next in line if top opponents weren't scared.

    As much as I love Hector, I think Rory may take this based on how he handled Woodley.

    He was 10s away from beating Condit and he was as green as it gets in that fight.

    The Robbie Lawler fight was close (came down to who won the first round).

    Good fight.
    I would favor Rory but Hector can be problematic to anyone.

    Wow if true major respect for Rory.

    Lombard in a (likely) 3 rounder is a really scary proposition. If I was Rory's management I would be like stay the hell away.

    Nice. I hope they make it official. I think Rory picks Hector apart pretty handily though.

    This fight has potential to offend JBG...depending on which fighters alter-ego shows up.

    Great fight. Lombard would maul him, Rory is way overrated imo. Rory is NOT Gsp.

    Rory will technically outclass and wear Hector down.
