He said after the fight that he got tagged with a left cross early in the first round, and he couldn't see out of his right eye the rest of the fight. I'm not sure if that was the reason, but he got worked the entire fight.theapportioner said:Well, Pettis apparently got concussed early and hung in there even though he probably wasn't right for the rest of the match. IIRC a similar thing happened in the Dillashaw vs Barao match where Barao took a hard hit early on and just wasn't the same.
"Rafael is on his way to Brazil right now to do a victory tour," Abdel-Aziz said. "He will do 90 days' rehab before training. Next Thursday, he is getting nose surgery. He fought [Pettis] with the right side [of his nose] completely closed and could breathe only 70 percent out of the left side."
"Because I feel Rafael dos Anjos when I fight with him," Nurmagomedov said. "Before fight with me, he smash five- win streak. He smash a lot of guys, smash Cowboy Cerrone too. And after me he have very good win streak, three win streak, knock out Benson Henderson. When I fight with Rafael dos Anjos, I feel he's very strong guy, but when I say he smash Anthony Pettis, a lot of people say, ‘Khabib says trash talk.'
You remember, I told you he's no true champion. I told you before, Rafael dos Anjos can beat him, I can beat him, and a lot of fighters can beat him. But all the time, Dana White say he's pound-for-pound king, he's one of the greatest. His coaches say he's Mayweather in MMA. I think it's joke, you understand? Now everybody understands who is who. Rafael dos Anjos, I, and Cowboy, and Michael Johnson -- these guys are top-four in lightweight division. Now Anthony Pettis go to the prelims."
NickEsasky said:For some reason I thought she fought at 155. I know she walks around at 175. I guess given the time 135 is doable.
This is what I figured, hence my first comment on it a few posts up. I assume that extra ten pounds to get to 135 would be extremely difficult. Even when she can rehydrate after the weigh in I assume she'll still be pretty weak from the cut. I was just thinking that it's at least feasible if she normally cuts down to 145 from 175. It still amazes me when Thiago Alves makes weight at 170.Marciano490 said:
It's such a hard cut for someone as muscular as her, though. This isn't James Toney dropping from a fat 240 to fight at 175. She's going to lose so much muscle, and correspondingly, strength. Look what happened after RJJ beat John Ruiz to win the heavyweight title, then dropped back down to light heavy to fight Tarver. It was an even smaller cut in terms of percentage of pounds lost, but Jones was equally ripped, and even though he was just returning to his normal weight class he came out so flat and weak he lost to a far inferior fighter right after he'd accomplished one of the more amazing feats in boxing history.
•ABQ off duty policeman identified Jones running from three-car accident. He was in a rental car. Marijuana pipe inside.
•No cocaine was found in the rental car Jones fled. ABQ spokesperson was very clear on that.
•According to ABQ police report, the vehicle Jones was traveling in ran a red light. Silver SUV, rented.
•According to police report, suspect fled then returned to the car to grab a large hand full of cash.
"The case has progressed and he is now our suspect in the the hit and run that happened earlier this morning involving a pregnant female," Drobik said. "We are now definitely looking at him as a suspect."
