Pretty impressed with how Rory was able to stay calm on the ground when Maia had him in a bad position. Also pretty surprised that Maia wasn't even able to attempt a submission, and how he went for some quality ground & pound instead.

Well, I am disappointed, but Rory did deserve the win. What is worrying is how much he was tagged by a hurt, gassed, bad striker like Maia. He will have to resolve that before thinking in stepping up against Hendricks or Lawler, whose every punch means business.

Would love to see Rory vs winner of Lombard/Shields for the title shot.

Maia vs Erick Silva would be a very intriguing matchup. Kind of a tossup though. Maybe Maia vs TJ Waldburger? I wanna see Maia back in the win column.

Rory kicked Maia's ass. Stop crying and spouting BS people.

The body shots slowed Maia down. Not his conditioning. The excuses people come up with, lol. It's right there on video tape... Rory hits Maia with a brutal body shot and Maia goes into desperation mode.

I'm guessing most of us haven't been hit with body shots from an experienced MMA fighter. Tell your friend to take a baseball bat to your side and see if you don't slow down.

Idiocy.

LOL, thats why he was winning the second...

Its a three round fight..

If you get tagged hard enough it only takes one shot to put you in a dire situation but I wouldn't expect you to understand.

Yes you're right one shot takes away all your cardio, even though the one good body shot he landed was to his left side not even his liver. Where did you learn about fighter conditioning bloodstain lane? And next you'll tell me some underground secrets like one big punch on the button can hurt you bad Thanks einstein

I don't think Rory is ready for Hendricks yet.

A little bummed out about Maia. Not sure where he goes from here. He is 36 with back to back losses and he doesn't react well when facing adversity. He was absolutely dominating Rory, but once he got tired, whether it was from poor conditioning or the body shots (no one knows for sure), he got desperate and attempted very poor take downs. Lets not pretend it was just Rory's take down defense (although it was good). When Maia gets desperate, his take down ability suffers badly as shown before. His reaction to a lot of adversity is horrendous and it's a shame because he clearly has talent.

I don't take anything from Rory, but to be fair, despite of the hard kicks he landed, Maia looked gassed by the end of the 1st round already.

Rory looked good tonight aside from getting thrown around in round one.
I highly doubt he will ever be champion, ever.
Hendricks would completely starch him.
