Jones and Rory act totally different from each other. Sure Rory maybe creepy but he doesn't hide anything from the public. I respect people who act like how they present themselves. Jones on the other hand is a whole different story and that is why a lot of people don't like him. Also Jones said he would never fight Rashad and he did. Lets see if Rory can keep his word.

I was rooting for BJ the whole time but he took a hell of a beating. It was hard to watch for sure and BJ got mad heart.
I didn't really like how Rory was show boating either but it didn't bother me as much as some people. It just showed how outclass BJ was.

Rory is a bit of an introvert, so that's a big part of why he seems "off" to some. Others just hate him because he doesn't dress or act like a "bro". The ones who hate him because he beat their boy BJ - well, I can respect that. That's how it goes in sports.

I thought Rory looked outstanding. I was really impressed. Even though he is a bit of an oddball, I would definitely call myself a fan.

I hope he gets his fight with Carlos because he was kicking his ass last time until he got stopped in the 3rd.

My only question is, if he beats Carlos, then what? Him and GSP wont fight each other?

Extremely hard fight to watch.

Rory looked absolutely outstanding. He was attacking from everywhere and was far too much for Penn.

I think he'd destroy Condit in a rematch. His striking looked so improved.

But man...hard fight to watch. Especially the 2nd round.

Man, it's hard to appreciate the new breed of fighters when they're dismantling your favorite fighters.

I think Rory should fight Nate Marquardt next. He's a beast at 170 lbs. He ain't fighting GSP for the title so I wouldn't know who he would fight next after Condit.

They might not have the same relationship, but I'm pretty sure they've trained with each other. Nate's a regular at Tri-star. But yah Nate Marquardt is a very talented fighter. He had one bad fight against Chael in MW and dropped to WW. He's too good for SF.

Nate would be a very huge test. Even Anderson said that he's one of the best at 185.

Rory vs Condit
Rory vs Hendricks
Rory vs Fitch
Rory vs Kos just to shut em up once and for all.

Rory is a new an improved GSP in the making, simply because he has not been hurt badly in a fight so mentally he's very strong. He was willing to stand for the majority of the fight against Condit and BJ. But when he takes you down he's got some powerful GNP. GSP is very graceful with his takedowns and game implementation. Rory is there to put a hurt with a wide arsenal. Those Brazillian kicks were wicked! Ali shuffle...not so much.

That, or he's a narcissistic sociopath using mixed martial arts as a tool to act out his sick fantasies until this doesn't do it for him anymore and he starts to **** and murder people. Either is a fair opinion to have though.
