"I don't care" = "I care but have no idea what I'm doing wrong and that's why it looks like I'm gonna cry."

lol this guy has been wanting to be liked his whole life so he thought he'd become this famous tough guy. It worked for a little while but he couldn't stop the weird unlikable person that he is from pouring outta him.

Or it's Canadianism I guess...

Megatherium - Not that Canadianism is any laughing matter.

Of course it is a serious handicap, but I for one have overcome it.

I am a survivor if nothing else.

Lol @Canadianism.

I agree with him. You cant step into a fight worrying about the crowd's reaction. You go in, put forth your best effort and hopefully it results in a victory. Remember, not too long ago fans were booing Anderson Silva.

Rory is a stud. I could easily see him moving up to MW over time and being a contender there. He is already a top 5 WW.

Megatherium - Is Rory the most psychoanylized fighter in UG history?
Diaz was, but currently, yeah it's Rory Phone Post

High-functioning autism or Aspergers seem to be carrying the day but 2Jupiters makes a compelling case for mild schizophrenia perhaps with a narcissistic dimension.

I personally just find him to be Canadian.

lol

he has a vicious case of the nerd, thats it, he is a freaking nerd

not the good smart type, the social retard type

Symptoms of Canadianism: adding 'ey' to the end of every phrase (question or not), having an inexplicable love for the game of hockey, and going out of your way to tell people that you're NOT American when traveling abroad. Has Rory displayed all of these? Phone Post

I don't think so man. He's also supposed to be polite, but that clearly wasn't the case on Saturday.

Have you ever heard the way we talk. Can you imagine the devastating effect going through life sounding like that has on a man`s psyche. Not to mention the demoralizing prospect of seeing and hearing everything in French when you yourself speak a weird form of English!

And the metric system. The government forced it on us wee English folk just because they hate us so. You have no idea what it is like brother, believe me.

Good for Rory. I prefer his attitude to guys who try to pander to fans and pretend to be golden boys like Jon Jones has done in the past.

Yes and kind of you for not mentioning the having sex with wild animals part.

Hardest part of Canadianism to beat for a lot of us.

He's just doing the canadian version of what the Diaz brothers routine.

for some reason the fact that he dresses hipster and doesn't cuss as much makes this approach less fan friendly than the Diaz brothers vulgar way of saying the exact same things.

Rory can't win. If he tries to smile, fans will say he's a fake. He's keeping it real now, and they're telling him to smile more often, lol.

Want to get hated in this business? Beat a legend. Jones and Rory were real, humble, before beating old school legends.

The funny thing is that when athletes are young, famous, and making a lot of money many truly dont care how the common fan perceives them. And I dont blame them!

You know when they start caring?

When their career is winding down or they retire and people still remember them in a negative light.

I have little problem with Rory as a fighter. Hes fantastic. Personality wise though, I think hes an idiot with a lot to learn.

Maybe he learns, maybe he doesnt.

But when hes retired and 40 or 50 years old and the fans still say, "yeah Rory was amazing but what a fucking douche", guarantee you he starts caring a little.

When the money slows down a bit, the media isnt calling you for interviews as much, and everyone is talking about the next rory, all you and everyone else is left with are memories.

If those memories are negative, well thats what he will be remembered for.

Barry Bonds went 40/40 (at the time only the second guy to do so in history) and won 3 MVP awards before he ever started using steroids.

Yet all people talk about is his personality (or lack of) and his drug use.

He just reiterated personally himself EXACTLY what I said about him after the fight. This is no "changing of the guard-" Rory fights for himself. And that's cool. He's doin' his thang and it's obviously paying dividends. Phone Post

I like Rory.

Lots of girly men on the UG.

"Oh no! He doesn't smile enough!" "He's awkward!"

anyone seen the girl that smiled at him from the countdown show lately???

but seriously the guy just needs a good couple years of ass on the reg and he will mellow out. he is a kid from the country trying to fit in and it is hard. nothing a little ass and some perspective wont cure. good luck on your journey rory.

I feel bad for the person or people who are in his way when he snaps.
