Came here to post this. Should be a good fight but if Rory Mac's last fight was of any indication of how he has changed as a fighter, it should be a bad night for Lima. Rory Mac stuck to his game plan and made Semtex look bad. I think he does the same thing.

It will not be a war. Rory will mop the floor with Lima... and yeah I guess show Lima that Bellafarce is his house.

I agree with FKA. Lima is way more well rounded than Daley,plus he's faster and hits harder than Lawler. I think Rory wants to be another GSP who avoids the stand up as much as possible and wrestles his way to easy wins. If Lima is in top shape Rory is in for a rude awakening.

I'm just trying to bust FKA's balls... but he wouldn't bite. Ever since Scott took over, I like Belly and I've always been a fan of Lima. I'm looking forward to this fight and even though a part of me hopes to see a good scrap, the other part wants to see it be a one sided affair in favor of Rory since I'm Canadian and have always been a big fan of his.

Regarding "Rory wants to be another GSP", re-watch his recent scrap with Lawler and tell me, is that how GSP would fight??? Hell no! Rory is Rory, not GSP... and GSP is my all time favourite. Nothing puts more of a smile on my face then watching that head kick ko on Matt Hughes to win his first ever UFC world title. I have no problem watching him dominate others on the ground, as well or jabbing the shit out of someones face to a landslide victory.

I gotcha Five Alive and hope Rory won't adapt the style of GSP. I can't blame him for taking Daley to the ground either,it was a wise decision.

That war with Lawler would change anybody. Probably took a few years off both their lives.
