    Alright guys so this Rematch MAY or may not go down. Probably will because I think Rory is going to get past Neiman Gracie. So if Lima and MacDonald meet up again who takes it? I'm thinking Lima makes the proper adjustments and wins. Rory seems half in the sport right now, and that is definitely a factor also. Lima seems HUNGRY to get that belt back and has looked stellar. Thoughts?

    If Rory still wants to fight I think Lima takes it. Rory basically said he wasn't about that life anymore after his last fight. Can't imagine how someone could put money on him from now on...

    That's what I'm saying Thuglife... man if your head isn't in it, you pay for it in MMA. Not a half way in sport.

    If it goes that far I think Lima takes it.
    I don't necessarily think he won the first time.

    If he wasn’t dumb as a stump he would’ve stood up in the last round and easily won the first fight.

    I think Neiman is going to submit Rory.

    Couldn't agree more with you.... Neiman gets it to the ground, Rory wilts and taps

    Yep, after the way Rory was talking, he sounds like he'll be looking for a way out. I know, I know, they're fighters and they're never looking for a way out but....my gut speaketh and it sayeth that Rory tappeth...

    Rory isn’t done. He will be back. May never reach his former glory, but he will be back in the cage to cash at least a few more checks.

    Rory has shown himself to be very adept at managing distance and practicing anti jiu jitsu, as he showed against Penn and Maia. I can't see a BJJer beating him sadly.

    That was young and hungry Rory, this Jesus loving Rory's BJJ looked like shit against Lima. Neiman's striking is good enough to set up clinches and he will get Rory down.... And with no disrespect towards the greatness of Maia and Penn's BJJ, but BJ was really undersized against Rory, and Maia isn't as dynamic as Neiman. Neiman spends a lot of time training with Gordon Ryan and Garry Tonon, and with the DDS... He's incredible at chain grappling.

    Kids change you.

    When my son was born my life changed. The seething pit of hatred and anger I was immediately changed. That parasite that had been feeding on my wife made me a different person.

    Once he was extracted from my wife’s body he immediately destroyed my life with any casual, plus some long term relationships with people that I had previously thought I held dear.

    The fucked up thing is that i accepted that with out question and loved that fucking parasite more than you i ever dreamed it was possible to love any living thing before it showed up in my life.

    It was as if everything I had accomplished to that point was meaningless. From there onward that screaming, sleep stealing, puking, excrementing and defenceless pile of Bones and skins happiness would be the only thing that mattered to me.

    I’m not at all a religious man so I can’t relate to whatever pressure or self doubt Rory may be feeling from his personal beliefs, but I do know that when my son was born he removed anger I had held onto since I was a child. Anger that had up until that point fuelled much of my existence.

    I used to campaign for trouble. Since my son was born I have dismantled many violent altercations outside of bars and get togethers by listening, talking (and hugging) people I know nothing about.

    If Rory has found happiness and never fights again I would be very happy for him.

    That being said, I can’t imagine the savagery and carnage that would be wrought upon anyone who threatened his family or broke into his house.
