Thinks dont work so simply. Who knows, the fights may have been very different in a different location, the travelling fighter may be taken out of their comfort zone in lots of ways, surroundings, travel, food, unfamiliar circumstances, add to that very hostile crowds and officials who are usually leaning toward the home fighter, some fighters can handle this better than others but whatever the case its usually much tougher to get a result in your opponents backyard so to say someone will automatically have the same level of performance or win away just because they won at home it way off line imo
