LMAO, who the **** else is he going to fight? He already beat that overhyped uncle tom woodley. Lombard is injured. He already beat Ellenberger in p4p worst fight of all times so no one wants to see that **** again. Dong is fighting in a month. Matt Brown just lost. And he already beat Demian Maia. Saffedine is the only guy left pretty much.

See, my complaint wouldn't be the quality of the cards. My complaint is the fact that they took two PPVs from us to move them to Vegas.

So, nope. Definitely not me.

That varies wildly depending on the event. Could be anywhere from like $600 down to like $200.

As somebody else said above, it's also basically the only top 10 fight that would be available. Maybe Matt Brown could've been ready by then (I haven't heard his status after the Lawler fight), but everyone else is either injured, or has a fight scheduled.

Seems like every time Rory wins he gets a lower ranked fighter. I'm no fan but would have thought he should be next in line to fight for the belt. Or at least a #1 contender with Dong after he spinning elbow KO's Woodley.

Right funny.  The UFC is right slippin.  I don't understand how a city that gave the UFC it's biggest event EVER, all the sudden wasn't good enough for Jones v Gus 2.

 

WTF do I know though.  I also think Silva vs Diaz as a headline fight for superbowl weekend is a wolf ticket ridden joke too.  2 fighters coming off back to back losses to headline superbowl weekend? lol

Because when Dana says Vegas "wanted it more", he means that Vegas (read: MGM) gave them incentives to hold the event there, meaning the UFC makes more money doing the show in Vegas, meaning the show happens in Vegas, because money is ultimately all that matters.

I think this is a definite setup by the UFC to market a potential future title shot for Rory.I cannot see Rory losing this and imo he will make it look easy.That si what the UFC wants to make Rory look real good going into a title shot other wise there is no way to market it.

It would end up being like Rhonda in her last fight,fighting someone we expected her to win EASILY.Rory cannot hang with the much heavier and stronger Hendrick's and Rory's stand up game is nothing more than average jabbing.Of course i would expect the UFC to make Rory sound amazing coming off a win over Teric but if the UFC fools even one fan i would be surprised.

 

On the other hand he COULD beat Lawler if there is none of that crap ref standing fights up because you can't expect a guy to use tons of energy to secure a TD and keep 100% busy while the other guy lays on his back resting.The whole nonsense of stand ups is a joke anyhow,if you can't get up yourself you have no business ever calling yourself a fighter.

Canadians ****ing about the ref standing people up. What a surprise.

I like Rory because he doesn't look like he's a tough guy and then he takes his shirt off and you can tell he's real strong and he fights super awesome.  His boxing is good and he's one of the best at everything.

Sure, I'd love to see that event live, but my problem is, and always has been, less about the particular event, and more about the fact that they announced the show for Toronto (contrary to Dana's claims, that show was officially announced), then moved it without needing to, and now we're not getting a show at all.

No ****?? He'll dominate someone that just about lost their last fight to a guy that couldn't hardly walk anymore?? Simply amazing. What a contender!

 

On a side note, I'll bet my life that this goes the full 25 minutes. These guys don't finish fights. They couldn't finish a sandwich.
