I liked Rory prior to the fight and I'm still basically a fan. I can't help but respect his talent, but I could have done without the Ali shuffle. I don't like it when a legend like Anderson does it and I definitely didn't like it when Rory was doing it against a (faded) legend in BJ Penn. It felt extra disrespectful due to Rory's place in MMA history vs someone like BJ's, clearly that's subjective, but I think that's why it bugged so many people. Rory will be champ some day for sure though, maybe sooner then later.

At first I thought it was more about the patriotism and loyalty to Penn, but after the taunting the 'Muricans wouldn't even let Rory say one word. He was definitely not getting ANY love, even after that performance. Although us Canadians were as loud as we could be.
I meant that this was the first and only fight where Rory has been booed. The cheers were thunderous when he rag-dolled Che Mills. For all we know it could be a one time deal. Americans cheering on an American fighter, a legend no less, while booing the foreign opponent is hardly new.

Some pretend as though it isn't true, but Americans are the most patriotic MMA fans there are.

He's probably a nice guy but there is something about him that just screams serial-killer. I think it's the looks together with his introvert personality.

Also I didn't mind him smashing Penn, altho I am a Penn fan I was expecting this to happen. The Showboating did bother me a bit tho.

Like already mentioned, It was an isolated incident.....now if he was "explosive" and "athletic" like Jon Jones then you would be looking at a new MMA villain.

Please, Canadians are just as bad as American fans.

And Brazilians are the most patriotic fans.

I enjoyed watching him fight a great deal.

I thought he could have finished BJ, but perhaps he chose not to, or just decided to play it cautious, not really sure, but still he was an exciting fighter to watch to me.

He looks a great deal like Patrick Bateman, especially the way he walked in dressed all GQ, but being that American Psycho is one of my favorite movies, that's a plus in my book.
