IIRC, Rory turned pro as a lightweight at 16.

He didn't move up to 170 until he was something like 17-18.


I don't know that his extreme size and weight gain occurred as a result of steroids... Maybe it happened because he was still growing?
That's a really odd way of spelling "20".

Oh, my bad. Pics of Rory's back acne, which you claimed were *evidence* of horsemeat were taken when he was 17-18?

If that's not it, I can't explain where I got the 17-18 number from...

Its not easy keeping track of Rory x Roflcopter romance.

Wikipedia or sherdog are great for fight records,

Rory moved to 170, 2.5 months before his 20th birthday, approximately 8 months later he made his Ufc debut against the Mike Guymon

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8

Thanks the video, Trix.

Rolfcopter, whats your problem with Trix and Rory? Are you jealous or something? Rory's out there training like a spartan and you excuse him of atrocities. You should be ashamed of yourself.

He really isn't all that strong

Everyone he has faced barring Condit have been favorable match ups to him but even then, Condit still has terrible TDD

Pyle has never been that great against wrestlers.

Che Mills is a British striker

Mike Guymon is well......Mike Guymon

He suplexed Nate in the third round but was still unable to keep Nate down and Guida already tossed Diaz through the air with a single leg. now obviously Nate has improved his strength along with his wrestling since then but it still isn't some incredible feat. not to mention Stun Gun already smothered him(before gassing of course) three months prior to his fight with Rory

Rory has some skills and certainly isn't weak but he doesn't have brutish strength.

Wrong Incognito, he IS that strong. Throwing around 6ft fighters light Nate Diaz shows amazing strength. It wasn't just the grappling, but the strikes and the way he hit Diaz, Pyle and Condit. You could feel the impact of the strikes that only a strongman can inflict. I felt like it was me being hit with a baseball bat just watching those fights on 1080i.

This Mills person may be a british striker but he is very strong defensive wrestling game, and is 5 years older than Rory and MacDonald made him look like a little girl. Do not imply that all the people Rory has beaten have had either weak strength or weak wrestling because that is not true. Look at Mills last fight, he was doing to the person what Rory did to him.

I think those pull ups Trix posted is what makes Rory so strong. His legs are super strong too, but I think that's from kettlebell swings and kettlebell single deadlifts. Nobody except GSP can beat Rory, I don't believe it

Hex, I don't mean to be disrespectful (because i know that I am on your 'WANTED TO BAN' list) but I genuinely don't believe he lost to Carlos Condit. He lost the third and final round, yes, but anybody with any superior sense would know that it was a silly stoppage. Rory was covering up, and the referee stop the fight with THREE seconds to go in the entire fight. Ridiculous. The ref just biased towards Condit, I think it was Mario Yamaski and he is half Mexican I believe. Rory would have won the fight based on the first two rounds had Yamaski not refereed.

I don't quite know what being Mexican has to do with anything....

Second, you might wanna go re-watch it because Carlos put it on him in that third round, I do agree the exact moment it was stopped wasn't ideal but it should have been stopped earlier, Carlos clearly took a 10-8 round and he absolutely without question beat Rory's ass in that last round. I don't get how people say Rory would have won a decision, Rory's face was a complete mess from getting battered by Carlos.

And finally....



I'm pretty sure that's NOT Mario Yamasaki...
