Demian Maia vs Rory Macdonald being RUMORED for UFC 161
 
Don't have any source since it's just a rumor going on around the web but apparently this might be in the works.

If this happens, and I hope it does, it will be an AWESOME fight. I personally don't think Rory has the BJJ knowledge to keep up with Maia who has been an absolute terror at WW. His flips have been stunning.

If Maia can win in a demolishing fashion I think he might be next in line after Hendricks and I think he could give GSP a really competitive fight.

Rory is going down!

Maia is a bad man at 170, I think Maia/Tarec is the fight to make provided Hendricks wins but since my boy Carlos is about to cave his shit in Tarec should probably fight George's after he retires Diaz.

Not sure how good Rorys jujitsu is but I could see Maia grapple****ing him.

Like by media????

I know fans are asking for it on forums, but haven't seen it being talked about as happening anywhere..

Maia won't be able to take Rory down and will get creamed on the feet.

Believe it.

Maia's biggest problem at MW was that he lacked the strength advantage to take certain fighters down. He doesn't have that problem against smaller fighters at WW, unless you factor in MWs disguised as WWs - like Rory.

Maia is a beast at WW and I'd love to see him fight GSP, so there's no sense in having Rory derail that potential fight, especially as Rory is unlikely to fight GSP right now.

My man Rory should take it. Maia has been a beast with his takekedowns at WW so it should be good though.

Love the fight. No one really expected Maia to take Fitch down so easily time after time....but he did. Rory is more athletic than Fitch, but Fitch is a strong WW, who has much more wrestling experience than Rory.

Could be a great fight.
