Eh he had one good body kick that shouldnt have lost all his cardio from that. Maia gave this one away. I didnt see the shields fight but from what people tell me his cardio cost him that one too.

Rory had great D on the ground against the best. Impressed.

Those body shots + jabs stole Maia's soul.

Pfft, lets stop being silly, like his conditioning was the reason he lost and not those monster body shots..

Yeah you're right those takedown attempts were just lethal and fully energized and him punching like a drunken sailor who's having a heat attack was just brilliant. He had one good body shot, maia didnt show up conditioned simple.

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.
