I think win or lose this is the fight that will make Rory for the rest of his career. I think it goes one of two way where it is either an epic fight of legendary proportions or its a fight were Rory believed his hype and leaves kinda embarrassed in his performance but either way I think it will make him a better fighter for having taken this one.

Rory all day, he's been so impressive. Very natural fighter, yes he's surrounded by great guys but you can see in the chaotic parts in the Condit and Diaz fights, he's a very powerful, natural fighter as well.

Time to pass the torch, you're too old to rock, no more rocking for you Penn! But if you do win this fight it'd be epic.

I still think on the feet Penn dots Rory up. But Rory won't look to trade much. And I don't see little Penn sweeping big ass Rory. This is a 145er vs. a 185er.

Rory by UD.
This....sadly

I really hope BJ's cardio is on point. If it is, I think he takes it by tko/sub. I wonder if an immediate takedown is something he's considering as well. Either way I don't want to see a gassed BJ getting his face smashed into the canvas for the last 10 minutes.

i don't know what to think of this fight. at first it was like yeah exciting first round then Rory will smash.. Now though, Penn looks in good shape and i mean in better shape than we have EVER seen him... even if his cardio isn't at an elite level, he will be faster and far more explosive and be able to keep it up for possibly two rounds instead of just one..

I would be quite interested to see what would happen if Penn did infact land a takedown and end up in a dominant position. He is most definitely the superior grappler but will be at a significant strength disadvantage I would imagine.

What's Rory actually good at? Like I mean, really good at, one area in his game where he excels over all or most of his opponents?..... He hasn't got one.

People ramble on like he's the next big thing, the next champ, this great prospect, but if you ask me, he's just another Charles Oliveira. A stupidly over hyped prospect.

Rorys biggest advantage is his strength. He's a strong guy and punches hard. His striking defense is sloppy, his take downs aren't pretty either. People also like to casually forget or ignore just how badly Condit beat the snot out of him in round three. Rory could have auditioned for a part in a Pan's Labyrinth sequel at the end of that fight.

BJ wins via being the better over all fighter.

Rory is good at everything, he's a modern fighter. If he's not having his way in one area, he can take the fight in a different direction with confidence.

And if you want to quote the Condit fight, Rory was handling him very well, winning the first two rounds in all areas. He said himself it was too much too soon, big opponent on the main card for his second UFC fight. Experience lose him that fight, not skills.
