Yeah thats pretty much calling him out.
Naw, I hafta' disagree. Calling a guy out is throwing down the gauntlet- it's daring a fighter to come face you, with the implied message that you're afraid if you don't.
Rory did the opposite of that, inasmuch as it's possible to do so when telling a reporter who he'd like to fight.
Until I see Aries pull some douche-y moves, I'll choose to give him the benefit of the doubt.
