Impressed with Maia's first round display, but his conditioning was disappointing. MacDonald was getting dominated, but I'm impressed with his heart displayed tonight. It shows that his mental state is in check. Sometimes getting beat up, but hanging in there and getting the win once your opponent slows down can show more about you than just dominating a fight from start to finish.
I don't know what to say about Maia. He was really schooling Rory with relative ease, but that means nothing if he can't keep up as the fight goes on. His desperation take down attempts were too familiar. Good job Rory.
