    Also on the card, the ghost of Kimbo Slice vs Lorenz Larkin's haircut.

    Rory is going to end up like Robbie,

    a punching bag.

    The best insults are the ones that are the most unwarranted.

    Like if you call @Poindexter a fuck tard.

    Now, did he deserve that? No, but it happened. And it was fun and we're all better off for it.

    I’m not saying it’s a walk in the park but I don’t think Rory can outstrike or out grapple him.

    I think Moose is the best MW in the world, Rory is a tough fucking cookie though and has a wrestling advantage but I think the wear and tear will do him no favors vs Mousasi's ridiculous boxing game.

    I complimented @Qball1974 , that's always unwarranted.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I don't think it's an easy fight for either guy. I just think Rory has the ability to mix things up a little better than Mousasi and I'm predicting that will be the difference maker.

    Can't we all just get along?

    I get what you are saying because Rory is more well-rounded, but honestly I always felt Rory's biggest problem was that he didn't know how to mix all his tools together well in fights.. The Lawler fight is a good example of that, Rory is a good striker and can strike with a guy like Lawler but why do it when you have such a distinct advantage on the ground? He's GSP without the IQ basically.. GSP will beat guys on the feet but still take them down because it's smart, guys can't knock you out as easily off their back.

    Granted this is a new leaf for Rory, he is still young and learning, maybe Bellator is where we finally see him put all the pieces together.

    That just got me so excited for this fight! They're both underrated by many, both in skill and personality.
