I'm not sure what it was - Rory being cautious, pacing himself, trying to make BJ absorb as much damage as possible... but it certainly looked like he could have ended it in the 2nd.
The look on BJs face after some of those liver shots in the 2nd was just disgusting, not sure how he didn't drop to the ground, or why Rory didn't pounce on him at that point. He could have swarmed him and finished him no problem I thought.
Probably has more to do with him training with GSP and at Tristar. No reason for Rory to go for broke when he's dominating the fight, and risk getting flash KOed while jumping ontop of BJ.
