If he truly refuses to fight GSP, what should Rory MacDonald do?

Ares11Ares11 Posts: 1,490Free
Is he just going to keep fighting mid to top tier competition until Georges retires or loses the belt, or should he move to MW? He's already pretty big for a WW, I don't think he'd have any problem tacking on the extra 15 pounds. What are your thoughts?

    He has to get past Jake first.

    First he has to beat ''The Juggernaut'' before planing the future... Jake is not a Guymon, Pyle or Mills...
    Hardest Test for Rory, since he lost to Condit!!!

    He doesnt have to wait that long.. When Hendricks KO's him then get KTFO again in the rematch, He will more then likely get a shot

    I'm hoping that's what happens, but there's always that fear that GSP will just lay on Hendricks and get the decision just like every other fight.

    Lol yeah, I was just giving you guys a hard time. I agree with the personality thing but I don't find it that annoying tbh. Sure he's cocky but at least he can back it up unlike some fighters. His fights are entertaining, he goes for finishes, and there's no denying the potential he has at any division, not just WW.

    I have a feeling GSP will lose to Hendricks. either that or GSP will move up and fight Anderson after..

    I don't really care if they fight or not. Rory is soo young, if he stops getting injured he has a long career ahead of him. that, and he has mentioned before that he would like to move up and fight bigger guys. Time will tell.

    oh, and Rory does have a hard test in front of him in Jake Ellenberger. But I think he'll take care of it and smash him.

    I've grown to like Rory and his odd kinks. I hope he smokes all the WW competition and fights GSP or moves up to MW and offers Anderson a fresh, exciting matchup.

    Pyle might as well be No. 10 so +1 for Rory (and Jake) imho

    and Marquardt still KO'd Maia who's Top 5 currently so +1 Saffedine imho
