The Red King finally becomes a champion. The only thing you gotta stay away from to beat Lima is trading against the fence. That's the last thing Rory will do.

Rory could very well be the best WW right now, such a shame he's in Bellator.

Prediction: correct MacDonald   wrong Submission   wrong Round 2  

I honestly believe that Rory is the best in the world at WW right now. No doubt in my mind that he'd take that strap from Woodley, Robbie doesn't have what it takes to be Rory anymore, and I don't see anything that RDA has to offer Rory. The only fight that I could see him losing would be against Wonderboy. Their first fight was a beautiful five round chess match, and I'd love to see that one ran back. Lima has nothing to offer MacDonald.

I agree that he can beat most Fighters but I think that Robbie has his number and that Thompson would beat him again.

NO MAIN EVENT FOR YOU! **** your WW title and your top 5 WW ranking. We have Quinton "I'd rather eat a cheeseburger than train" Jackson v Chael "I'm mediocre but I can speak well so it's ok" Sonnen.  That's the fight to watch.

Apparently, the tickets weren't selling well at all, so I guess they're trying to see if by putting the two most recognizable names in the card as the main event that will change.

Not like I care though, if anything, this is better for me. If Sonnen/Rampage starts to suck, I can just go to bed instead of sitting through it to watch the fight that I care the most about :D

Does switching the main event 1 week out of fight night help with ticket sales? I don't think so. If anything, this move was made thinking that the bigger/more proven draws in the main slot will help with ratings. I don't like the move. They should have done it from the very beginning instead of disrespecting the championship fighters with this switch 1 week out.

@Thesnake101 I guess that's a good way to look on the bright side of things.
