    His 3rds are a bit "iffy". A few times he just pressed Penn against the cage and just laid on him lol. I like the condit fight, I think Fitch would be interesting too. If Penn gotta td and held Rory against the cage, imagine Fitch lol.

    Rory would be "fitched" lol.

    The guy has been to the 3rd round only 3 times in the UFC, and only once did he look as good in the 3rd as he did in the 1st or 2nd. It's a fair question, especially since his only loss comes from wilting in the 3rd round of a fight where he was ahead on the score cards.

    Condit is a really dangerous fight, but based on the first fight it's one he should win this time. Rory's 3rd round is still a little iffy too; that's when Condit stopped him and he pretty much stopped fighting in the 3rd round of the Penn fight.
    Perhaps a fair question in regard to Rory's gas tank and his 3rd round performances. Although, he was able to keep pace against Nate at UFC 129. Rory definitely slowed his pace and his attack against Penn in the 3rd round but I'm not sure if that was gas tank related, or if he just realized he was so far ahead on the scorecards and coasted it in. He was attacking effectively, just perhaps he didn't feel the urgency to close Penn out, especially knowing how hard it is to put Penn away.

    I think either Kos or Condit are good match ups to test Rory next. I'm surprised Kos is that eager to fight a guy that will probably jab his way to another broken orbital bone.

    Wait, how the hell can any of you think Kos doesn't "deserve" a fight with Rory? Do you guys not know anything about how young fighters get built up? Rory needs to beat more names to become established. Beating Penn was a great start, and he was young enough when he fought Condit that it wasn't too big of a step back. But still, against ranked opponents he is only 1-1.

    Kos, whether you like him or not, is a big name at WW. He's a MUCH bigger name then Rory. The guy was #2-#3 WW for a really long time, and a win over a guy like that would be huge for Rory. It's also a semi-dangerous fight, since Kos probably has an edge in the clinch/wrestling. A much safer fight for Rory would be Alves.

    Condit is a really dangerous fight, but based on the first fight it's one he should win this time. Rory's 3rd round is still a little iffy too; that's when Condit stopped him and he pretty much stopped fighting in the 3rd round of the Penn fight.

    In no particular order of occurence here is how I would like the WW div to play out over the next few PPV's/events:
    Gsp vs Hendricks
    Condit vs Fitch
    Rory Mac vs Diaz
    Koscheck vs Erik Silva
    Solid fuckin fights and IMO none too far out of left field as far as deservedness. Out course I am at work and could be forgetting something but wtv.

    Excuse me while I laugh.

    Even Kampmann is ahead of Diaz currently.
