Rory should regain his spot after this fight. Maia is very good, but I think that McDonald will keep it on the feet, he is definitely very good at doing that. Maia will try to strike and to take the fight to the ground in the end of the first round, but Rory should be able to defend well, keep his distance and strike till Maia has no answer for his attacks, after which Rory should secure the UD when he gets comfortable. McDonald's main mistake in the Lawler fight was that he thought he was invincible in the striking department and he wasn't moving enough, which resulted those big shots to land for Robbie. I think that if McDonald was more focused in this fight he would have won it and now he would have taken Lawler's spot against Hendriks for the title. He should be a beast in this fight against Maia to regain his title contendership.
