Good for rory not to rush in like a rookie and stick to his game plan..didnt fall for the pressure of the boo, the pressure of the Ellenberger trash talk, or the pressure of the title shot..pretty composed for a 24/25 yr old
He didn't run he just never committed to exchanging so he could always get out of the way. If he did what Dana wanted he would have gotten KOed and he knew it. What this fight really showed us is that Hendricks and GSP would both murder him.
