The amount of trash that Rory talked is surprising

I remember back when he was so loyal to Condit when everyone was booing him. So it really tool me by surprise when he said some things about BJ. I know Penn also said some stuff but I would think that he would handle it like GSP. Your thoughts? Phone Post

*took not tool. Phone Post

Talked trash....backed it up. I see no problem there.

Talked trash....didn't back it up. Problem there.

I don't like how he's saying he "doesn't fight for the fans" or care what fans think. I don't know if he's trying to embrace the "heel" persona, but even Chael calls himself a People's Champ.
He's not even being promotional, just unlikeable. Phone Post

Why should he care what fans think? If he did he'd have a miserable career. The way you guys flip-flop on who you like & don't like... I'm glad he fights for himself. Hes focused on the right things.

Fucking this.

War Rory! Phone Post

Rory is a nutcase. I'm a fan. Phone Post

Well fuck me for not agreeing with you guys. Totally deserved those 4 vtfd's for saying I don't like that one aspect of Rory.

Hope you guys don't get hurt when this hype train derails. He demolished an out-of-shape, past his prime Lightweight in BJ Penn and another LW in Nate Diaz, but couldn't beat Condit, who couldn't beat GSP, so Rory is far from the god you all expect him to be.

Not taking away from him, he's an incredible athlete and still developing his game (and at a very fast pace and very young, and he'd damn sure kick my ass) but don't get your panties in a wad every time someone disagrees with you.

-4 as I post this. I'll let you bang the Vote Down, bros. Phone Post

Not a god but it's not just a hype train, I agree that beside Condit he didn't fight top guys in the division, that's why I am looking forward to his next fight, people will see what he's capable of doing, he's only 23 and was only 21 when he fought Condit and you gotta admit that he did pretty good Phone Post

He did. I'm not denying his talent at all. The guy has a very high ceiling and won't peak for YEARS if he stays injury free.
I could see ups and downs of him rematching Condit. It would show how much he's improved, but if he lost to Condit twice then that would be a huge speed bump. I think they should match him up with Hendricks, would be an entertaining fight for sure. Phone Post

Most fans are fickle and frankly, dumb. Rory's making the right choice by not concentrating on their whims.

I wonder if the same people who like Rorys antics are the obes who hate Rashad for his supposed disrespect and showboating...

DoomFarmer - 

Usually BJ is the one talking shit.

Rory just wanted to outdo him and get in his head.

Really odd at how people have overreacted to the whole thing. Phone Post


Rory looks a bit psycho, I love it.

The more shit he talks, the more people tune in to see him lose or back it up, the more marketable he becomes.

Trash talk sells, it really surprises somebody when a fighter uses it? Ever?

I have no problems with either guys' attitudes. What annoys me is when athletes try to be all PC and pander to fans with fake golden boy personas like Jon Jones has tried in the past.

Fighters who say they fight for the fans are either lying or idiots. They fight for themselves, money, family or love of competition. Not one says I really hope the nameless guy in the 3rd row is proud of me.
