Rory Macdonald will be the UFC welterweight champ within 5 years.

 After seeing how he performed after his first career loss, i can safely predict that Rory "the water boy" Macdonald will wear UFC gold before too long.

Rory Macdonald is part of the next generation of MMA athletes. His not one, not two, but THREE german suplexes against Nate diaz last saturday at UFC 129 in Toronto practically one after the other demonstrate his unbelievable strength, and his fight with Carlos Condit (who is currently a top ten welterweight) was one that he was dominating in all areas, until the final minutes. The TKO loss in that fight led to him taking a step back and rethinking his fight game, and it payed off. His battle with Diaz was dominating and truly eye opening. This kid can hang with the big boys. And the REALLY crazy thing? hes only 21.

Rory Macdonald is a powerful striker. He is well versed in submissions. His grappling and takedowns are dominant and extremely powerful. and the most important point is the amount of experience hes aquired at such a young age. In 5 years, if not sooner, Rory Macdonald will hold UFC gold. If GSP is still the king of the mountain by then, he is going to be thrown off that high perch by this amazing rising star from Kelowna BC. Dont agree with me? Please let me know why, and any other thoughts on the matter.
