Not to mention he’s probably 20 pounds heavier. Log in to Reply Chicago July 23, 2013 i would like to see the whole session. i wounder if they edited it down to make chris look better. Log in to Reply YODA July 23, 2013 Weidman clearly won that. Log in to Reply wow July 23, 2013 From the responses in the comments, I think you guys misunderstand what’s going on here. When you’re someone’s sparring partner, especially if you’re the one wearing the gear, you’re not trying to knock the guy’s head off. You’re just practicing. Log in to Reply Sammy July 23, 2013 well no kidding he won, he is the undefeated MW champ. He is also bigger and longer. Log in to Reply rob July 23, 2013 Bravo, wow hit the nail on the head Log in to Reply mmafan July 23, 2013 Rory has no power in his shots not just from this but look at his fights against Condit and the like And his gas tank is suspect even when in Fight Shape like in the Carlos Condit fight. Condit got the TKO because Rory gassed out in the Third. Log in to Reply Iron_Cobra July 23, 2013 Good footage. I like rorys uppercuts. So does this mean hes ready for the rematch with condit??? Log in to Reply LoneRonin July 23, 2013 @Sammy are you referring to his dick?? Log in to Reply MMAGiantSilva July 23, 2013 Lol looked like Pro’s vs Joe’s. It was definitely apparent why Rory needed the head gear lol. Log in to Reply MMAGiantSilva July 23, 2013 Wow – nah he was trying just as hard as Weidman he was not in there to be a punching bag. Nice try though. Log in to Reply MMAGiantSilva July 23, 2013 not to mention the guy with the head gear is usually the one closer to a fight. For obvious reason’s but you are right we have no idea what is going on. As you were. Log in to Reply Benny July 24, 2013 This is not a contest! I don’t know how old this footage is but Chris should had taken in a bit easy,the last thing they want is Rory pulling out due to an injury! Jake has more power,Rory is more technical,I hope Rory wins! Log in to Reply paddedummy July 24, 2013 It looked like they were just taking turns punching each other in the head to me, rockem sockem robots style, so Rory wins for being the one “smart” enough to be wearing headgear Log in to Reply Dave July 24, 2013 clearly some people commenting who “won” or who did “better” are clueless how training works. this is NOT a fight its called Sparring!! so obviously they can’t go full force, heck they barely might go 50% power. this is like a warm up! Log in to Reply mangymongoose July 24, 2013 Rory is going to be a beast if he keeps sparring with guys like that. Log in to Reply rob July 24, 2013 Mmafan, keep up the hate. It’s great when you conveniently fail to mention that Rory was only 20 and hadn’t even trained at Tristar when he fought Condit Log in to Reply ap July 24, 2013 it goes a long way knowing your sparring with someone lighter and having less power. its easier to become more aggressive without the fear of going night night. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick July 24, 2013 @mmafan That happened 3 years ago… Log in to Reply mmafan July 24, 2013 Yeah it happened 3 years ago so? It will happen again that’s MMA. Condit would destroy Rory again over 3-5 Rounds. Just because his at Tri-Star does not mean his God like lol. Ellenberger’s going to be one tough out for Rory if he can dominate Ellenberger than he gets to fight GSP or Hendricks. I’m picking Ellenberger & I come from the same State/Province as Rory in Canada :). Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
