That fight was entertaining, even though it was just a beat down.

I guess I'll be the rebel, and go with Rory steamrolling Maia. Probably not a stoppage, but an easy UD. Rory will probably keep it on the feet, and Maia still has shitty striking.

seems like a lot of you should be laying down on Demian should betting be something you enjoy doing. Rory is -280 which is too high for me to bet straight up, but I do think he wins rather convincingly. He may even drop Maia and tko gnp him. Unan Dec also possible and probably more likely.
I like both fighters. Not sure who I want to win more, probably Rory as I think he has more overall tools to beat a Hendricks in the future.

I like Maia here. I think Rory is a bit overrated. Good no doubt, but I don't think he is quite as good as others think.

Rory should regain his spot after this fight. Maia is very good, but I think that McDonald will keep it on the feet, he is definitely very good at doing that. Maia will try to strike and to take the fight to the ground in the end of the first round, but Rory should be able to defend well, keep his distance and strike till Maia has no answer for his attacks, after which Rory should secure the UD when he gets comfortable. McDonald's main mistake in the Lawler fight was that he thought he was invincible in the striking department and he wasn't moving enough, which resulted those big shots to land for Robbie. I think that if McDonald was more focused in this fight he would have won it and now he would have taken Lawler's spot against Hendriks for the title. He should be a beast in this fight against Maia to regain his title contendership.

If Rory fights like he did against Lawlor he's done for.

Hoping for a Macdonald finish, hopefully by stoppage but it's a toss up really. Maia has looked excellent at 170 and it's hard to pick against him.

I really like Maia at 170 but hope Rory smashes him to make a statement.
