    Especially if you want to learn how to pressure someone with a heavy right hand, or, just learning pressure fighting in general. Rory put a master class performance on Woodley, it's absolutely stunning to go back and watch that fight, to see Rory completely shut down Woodley. Stiff arming FTW.

    Rory is an incredible fighter, wish he was still with the UFC but at least he's getting paid in Bellator.

    Rory vs Woodley 2 would have been a great fight. Another poor oversight by the UFC because they didn't want to pay him Khabib money.

    Nate Marquardt did pretty good too when he put Tyron out cold.

    That fight is worthless compared to MacDonald/Woodley. MacDonald put on an absolute pressure clinic, and there's a LOT any young fighter can learn from watching it.

    Ufc is mystifying, Rory wrecks Woodley then has foy candidate with lawler and they basically release him after blah performance with wonder boy. thats how fighters who want to be paid are getting treated, regardless of ability

    I'm not disagreeing with you but my point still stands. Nate is the only one to put him out.

    Agreed TS.

    Rory really schooled Woodley. It was very, very impressive.
