I think the sport is evolving. and I think he doesnt train nearly as hard as other top tier pro fighters.
But he looked good, no doubt. Really rewatch the fight. His movement, his kicks. Gus just beat him up. And took his punches, Rua looked lost when he couldnt KO him within the first few rounds, which he's always been able to do.
