    I'm for Rory losing again. Something about the kid just don't like his cocky attitude. Maybe he'll change, but I've always liked Maia so it was a easy choice for me.

    Yeah, it's funny.

    I am looking forward to this fight personally. I like the match up. Hope Rory earns the victory.

    I'll take rory in a decision. Hopefully the kid brings back the excitement and quits trying to just jab people to death.

    I'm taking Maia for this one, and I think he'll get the finish, too. I don't think Maia will want any part of the stand-up game and will look to close the distance and pressure MacDonald from the start.

    If MacDonald can't keep Maia on the outside, I think Maia has enough tricks up his sleeve to get MacD down. Maia has pulled off some unorthodox takedowns/trips, and shouldn't be giving up much (if any) size to Rory in this fight.

    As for on the ground, Maia is tight, technical and aggressive, and it won't take much of a mistake on Rory's part to give Maia the opening he needs.

    Maia by second round sub.

    Here comes the downslide of Rory Mac's career.

    MacDonald (15-1) had his five-fight win streak snapped by Robbie Lawler this past November, dropping a split decision. The Tristar Gym fighter had topped Jake Ellenberger, BJ Penn and Nate Diaz during his win streak.
    15-2.

    Come on Maia!

    I hope he utilizes his jiu jitsu, especially if Rory gets him down. I also hope he uses good head movement and doesn't get jabfucked for the duration of the fight.

    I'm rooting for Maia, but I think this will another jabfest by the faster Rory. His wrestling is probably good enough to avoid the takedown.
