Who comes out looking the best after April 18? My vote is Rory. Come at me.

Hoping for Matt Brown, but I doubt it. Most likely Rory MacDonald, but Hendricks wins unimpressively, and Johny still gets the title shot. War Brown and Rory!

If we are basing this strictly off chest hair, Matt Brown.

Rory beats Hector, Gastelum beats Woodley, Hendricks grinds out Brown. Give Rory the shot.

If it were a one-night GP, Rory wins hands-down. He can pace himself and has the most tools to win, offensively and defensively. Brown is an offensive beast, but Hendricks is going to storm out of the gates and dominate him in the early going to win a decision. 

A tired Hendricks meeting Rory in the finals spells disaster for the Texan.
