Gregor Gillespie remembers a teammate’s almost flippant piece of encouragement one day in 2012 as he walked around with an IV pump in his backpack.

“You’re going to be back,” the teammate told him, as if he had even gotten there in the first place.

The truth was, he hadn’t fought yet. It was just that year that he had decided he was going to fight.

“That’s easy to say when you’re 10-1,” Gillespie (3-0), who tonight faces Justin Stewart (0-0) at Ring of Combat 50, told MMAjunkie. “When you’re 0-0, and you’re 26 years old, that’s tough.”

ROC 50 takes place at Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. The event streams live via online pay-per-view.
