I didn't go to the first Vancouver card but I remember watching the event thinking that this Rory kid was in tough against a guy like Condit. Didn't know who he was but I remember thinking he was just a token BC kid being led to slaughter. The crowd went nuts for him, though and he put on a solid performance for the those first two rounds. Made a fan out of me as well. I just went down to the Seattle Fox card, largely to see Rory fight and the crowd reaction was in reverse as it was in Vancouver. The crowd was booing him so loudly, I couldn't hear his post fight interview.

Nah. Rory's emotions didn't get the better of him. Carlos Condit got the better of him in the third round.
I've seen nothing from Condit to say that he would beat Rory "again". If/When Rory gets his hands on him, hes going down, Rory by UD. I really hope they set this fight up.
