show (someone) what (one's) made of

To demonstrate one's true talent, fortitude, ability, courage, or worth (to someone). No one thinks you stand a chance in this match, but you go out there and show them what you're made of! This could be the biggest trial of my career. Time to go show what I'm made of!
