You obviously put a lot of work into this thread so + 1 for that.
But I can't see how feeding Rory to Carlos Condit was protecting him. Rory waaaay over-performed in that fight and only collapsed in like that last 10 seconds.
However, I'll agree that since that fight, he's been given hand-picked opponents.
I don't see the point in protecting him, personally, as the second he emerged as a threat to GSP, old Georges brought him in and became 'friends' so now they'll never fight. So what's the point?
Not a fan of either GSP or Rory tbh, but that has a lot to do with the fact I'm in Canada, and it's hard to like either of them here unless you're a total homer because the media here hypes them up to absurd amounts just because they're Canadian.
I think Diaz would have smashed GSP personally, and while I don't think Penn will beat Rory, I would love it if he did.
