    Yeah, I'm not qualified to offer an opinion on him as a fighter either way. I will say that he seemed like a decent guy and a hard worker from what I saw of him.

    Yes and no. They don't even attempt to varify that the guys know what they're doing AT ALL. AT...FUCKING...ALL. They could make people do amatuer fights first...they don't. They could have tryouts...they don't. They could avoid filling cards with guys from schools that plainly suck balls. They don't.

    Not really knocking them, cause they're better run than many promos, but I've seen more talent and entertaining fights at the amatuer events I judge.
    I pretty much agree with you, but I also know from having several training partners fight with KOTC that they always have trouble finding guys willing to fight. A lot of them end up being last minute. I don't know if that is because no one wants to work with them or its just hard to find guys ready to fight in Canada. I think its the later though because I've heard mostly good things about KOTC. They aren't like some of the orgs in Canada that fight it out on the UG forum.

    They are what they are. A small time promotion in a country where the talent pool is still growing. This will be a much bigger step up for Rory.

    The thing is, KOTC isn't one promoter, it's a brand used by many, many promoters. It's like Shooto, or like a boxing sanctioning body more than a traditional MMA promotion.

    No. There's seperate promoters in Nanaimo, Vernon, and I dunno if they still do'em in Alberta, but those are/were seperate as well.

    Rory fights on Monday! It will be a swing fight, so it will only get aired on tv if the other fights end quickly, so lets all hope for quick stoppages!

    Here is an article on ufc.com about him.
