Re: MMA Discussion Thread

I'm not as high on Rory as a lot of others. He's certainly very talented, and it's hard to argue his position. I just don't see him as a destroyer or some kind of phenom. He's a gifted, hard-working fighter that can probably beat most top 10 talent. Although I'm not sure that I would give him the edge over Maia, Condit, or Hendricks. And if he was to beat them, I suspect that it would be razor-thin.

I can see him becoming a destroyer in years to come, but I don't think it's there right now. He's very effective against top lightweights, and gatekeepers. He had a lot of success early against Condit (at 21, which is, insane). Outside of that, I don't think that he's proven that he can demolish any top WW.

Still, top 5 (maybe 2).
