Rory Mac is a future champion

He's an elite WW fighter, top 5 IMO. If he stays healthy he can easily become a champion. He has age on his side and plenty of time to soak up all the knowledge the sport has too offer him. Great athletic ability, great technical striking, and outstanding jiu jitsu. If he beats ellenberger he should be in line for a title shot. Trains out of tri-star and knows better than anyone how to beat GSP. Future champion. True words.

Dennis Siver
Edson Barboza

I find it funny that Rory has this whole "quiet serial killer" persona, yet he won't fight GSP.

If Rory beats Ellenburger but still doesn't want to fight GSP, he should just go up to 185. He's already a pretty big WW so I think he'll fit in nicely in the MW division. Plus, I think he's an excellant match-up for guys like Weidman, Jacare, Okami, etc..

Ellenberger destroyed Condit in the first round when they fought. Ellenberger can KO almost any fighter early in a fight unfortunately he has never really figured out a way to extend his gas tank.

therefore your whole point is irrelevant. why make a comparison to rory when you're just gunna say "ellenberger will gas out". yeah, cardio is important in MMA and if you aint got gas in the tank don't put the keys in the car.

Did he accidentally win? The GNP he threw was unintentional? Nope, he knew what he was doing, therefore it can't be called luck imo.

Rory is definitrly taking a belt in the future, the way he mauled Penn was just gorgeous.
