    The dude is 8-1 his last 9 only losing to Condit, a top 5 WW in his very first fight and was winning until the last minute. His other loss was to Lawler who is now the champion and that fight could have gone either way. Since then beat Maia, Woodley and Saffiedine, all in top 5/10 in the division at the time. I know they love these Lawler v Hendricks fights but come on at least give him something. Do you think it's because of is American Psycho personality?

    they want rory to take the belt from hendricks. he already lost to Robbie, and if he lost a second time then that would suck for the ufc.

    What should have happend is Hector should have got the title shot and not burkman. Rory after fighting saff should have got the shot after lombard. And hendricks should have to fight a couple top opponents

    There is something fishy with your math.

    next proper champ of the division

    he had a dip in his mindset a year or two ago but he seems focused again and by far the most talented fighter in his weight class

    The UFC woud have all sorts of headache problems if Lawler-Hendricks 3 is the next fight & it results in a razor thin decision with calls for a 4th. Give Rory his due and let him avenge a loss

    Thanks for correcting an error. It happens, I meant in his last 9 but thanks for your non-valuable input. Typical Sherdogger looking for an error to comment on

    Seemed like McDonald was being pushed as a future star for awhile by the UFC but now its like hes in stall pattern that he cant get out of

    i feel you dog, i really do. Rory even stated after the Lawler fight in a interview that he didn't even try in that fight because he was stifled with gsp being champ in his division. The Rory that fought saffedine would destroy Lawler

    You need to chill out, you made a small mistake in your OP and I let you know.

    I wasn't insulting or rude.

    TS, i think you should fight it out with this guy who says (and i quote) "we know the UFC wants Rory to succeed...."

    both of you seem to have conspiracies in mind, both of you are looking at the exact seem set of facts, and yet you came up with completely opposite conspiracies.

    go sort it out, let us know what you two come up with :) thanks!

    Hold up, did Rory actually say he "didn't try" vs Lawler because of GSP? If so, that would get its on chapter in Big Nog's memoir.

    Also, the Condit fight was not his first fight in the UFC was it?

    Maia wasn't that great when Rory beat him and it was closer than what Lawler did to Rory. The judge who voted for Rory over Lawler is an assclown at best, corrupt at worst.

    Woodley was a good win but the fact remains that Rory has yet to defeat a top 3 or 4 guy, and since Hendricks and Lawler are SO close with both fights ending in controversy, a third fight is in order.

    Make Rory fight Lombard. If he beats Lombard I'll believe he MIGHT beat Hendricks or Lawler. Right now he's number 4 in my book because Lombard will likely eat him for lunch.

    Yeah he is 8-1 in his last nine with losses to Condit and Lawlor. Rory isn't getting a title shot because he doesn't move the needle. He needs another win even though clearly he is number one contender. This is NuUFC.

    It's because they're worried that rory capturing the title might prevent a potential GSP return.

    Clearly number one contender means he moves passed Hendricks. You want to explain that one?
