Don't. The cut was terrible. In the last month of training camp a cut like that will keep you from sparring. Not only that, but a stiff jab would probably open up the cut in the fight itself.
Copter is like a 9/11 conspiracy theorist. He makes all these bullshit connections in his head and calls them fact. Everyone else sees how absurd he is and laughs at him... but he's so sure because of of his ability to convince himself of something he doesn't have any proof of. He argues out of emotion because he hates the guy.
If Rory was trying to make an excuse to get out of a fight, he would have said it was a more serious injury. Not a cut. There's 1000 other injuries that wouldn't require any visible proof and would sound more legit. If he was trying to get out of a fight / avoid testing he would have said he bruised / broke a rib or something like that. Use your head people.
