Byrd was hitting him back but he was also losing most of the rounds. Vitali was waaayy ahead on points when he quit. It had nothing to do with Byrd but everything to do with his fucked up shoulder.
The first time roy faced adversity was in the first Griffin fight and he didn't fold, he was on his way to stopping Griffin when he was DQ'd.
