Bingo, I agree with that part. Rory may have won the first 2 rounds, but they were definitely close and he was by no means dominating Nate up until those suplexes, and even then, like you pointed out, Nate wasn't exactly fazed or in trouble. A large Rory Macdonald should have rag dolled basically a lightweight much sooner. I find it funny when people say Rory dominated Nate Diaz when they fought as if he just threw him around the cage for three rounds. Some MMA fans memories are so short term, they can't even remember a fight as a whole.
Still, Rory did beat Nate and was the stronger guy easily, but let's stick to the facts.
