Oh right, I get what you mean now. You want to see him come back and win after getting hurt. That is the thing that he hasn't shown so far. The fights he's won he's dominated from start to finish and his 2 losses he was 1 punch KO'd and the other he was wobbled then submitted, the Ole Club n' Sub!
I'm not sure he's that sort of fighter? Seems like more of an athlete than a fighter. I'm not gonna change my mind til I see different

Coz like you said, the fights he's won, he's absolutely starched his opponent. I wanna know that he can fight fire with fire. I wanna see him put into and thru some tough adversity, and claw his way back for a W. Because yeeaaaa, those brutal highlight reel KO's are extremely gorgeous, but it's simple, you're not gonna be able to do that to everyone. I just wanna see that he's able to win a fight, by way of not dominating. Who knows tho... Maybe you're right. Maybe he's not that guy, maybe he can't. Well we get to see on Saturday

Rooting hard for Rory here, but his interview after the Fitch fight has me really nervous about his propsects here. Maybe I'm being pessimistic here, but I can't honestly say that I think that his head is fully in the fight game.
