I hope he just retires, He was great, but he has been passed by by a younger smarter group of trainers and fighters, Evolution of the game. I lost credits on BJ for the last time last night. Time for me to evolve with the way I bet on fights,lol..

If BJ was really motivated he would be at 155 and under Mandarich, this dudes just going out there to collect paydays.

I don't think anyone with half a mind expected him to be competitive with a guy who had 5 inches and 30lbs on him.

Fight went exactly as I expected.

I can't wait until one of the elite fighters (current day) turns out the lights for Rory Mc.Creepy. That guy, his ugly mug and his hipster style just made my most disliked fighter list.

Opinions on Rory Macdonald have really changed my feelings towards a lot of people on this board.

The guy is seriously one of the nicest and coolest people I've ever met. And because he beat the living shit out of BJ Penn everyone hates him. Gotta love the internet.

UFC on FOX 5:



Don't be expecting anything remarkable. If BJ doesn't finish it early, Rory's going to overpower, grind and beat BJ up. Rory's the future of the division, and BJ's awesome, one of the greats of all-time, but I don't see him winning this fight. Rory's just too good, too talented, too driven and I see him dominating.
Called it. Rory looked awesome. Just a shame he won't fight GSP. However, the potential of Weidman vs MacDonald for 185 title in the future sounds pretty sexy!

Honestly thats not at all the reason I'm hating on him.
I knew he was going to massacre Penn but something about him just rubs me the wrong way, he comes off as cocky, arrogant and creepy. But hey unlike you, I've never met the guy so I could be dead wrong I guess.

I just put him in the same category as Jon Jones, and I'm not a fan of his personality either. Same as with Jones I think Rory will achieve greatness as well.

It annoys the **** out of me the way mma fans are sometimes. Everyone loves the guy before this fight. Now he puts a beating on an old dog and forums turn on the guy. Not saying that's what youre doing. If you don't like him that's fine but I mean Jesus he gets shit for being a hipster yet a lot of people seem to only like guys on the way up then they take a step into a more public eye and they get hated on.

I've never met Jon so I don't know everyone I know that has met him said he was a nice guy. But I spent the better half of my summer training with Rory and he was a really likeable and very nice guy. So I understand I'm biased but what has he done that brings him all this hate? He dresses with some style and calls out a guy that pulled out a crazy finish and beat him with second left.

I just don't get it. I defend forums all the time to people and say that they aren't just filled with guys that never step in gyms and guys that don't train and people who are active socially outside of w.o.w and that not all of them are girlfriendsless keyboard warriors then I see stuff like the hate coming out for Rory and his clothes or people bitching about asinine things and I feel like I need to stop defending the internet.

Yea man I see your point and regarding the internet, well yea it's true what you say about many forums. I do think this place is better though & many or even most of the posters here are really decent people who actually have a life & all that.

In my defense I started disliking Rory before his fight was even announced. But like I said I never met him so who knows.

Forum-talk shouldn't bee taken seriously tho, I mean I normally root for people I can somewhat relate to that also bring a good fight to the octagon, Rory is an awsome fighter, I just can't realte to him as a person.
I do agree tho that sometimes we get caught up in what we see on TV and judge people way to quickly.

I don't think I'm biased as I did place a massive bet on Rory. Can't say I was too happy about winning cuz I knew it could very well be BJ's swan song.

From an outside perspective Rory does seem a bit aloof. To me it's not about his style sense more about his demeanor. I can't quite pinpoint it. He seems devoid of any emotions or any personality. As far as being a likeable guy I can see it especially when he said he wouldn't fight GSP. That I do respect.

Rory vs Eric Silva, Fitch or Hendricks would be interesting along with a rematch against Condit.
