Legit imo: “I didn’t clear the body triangle, I tried to twist out and I tore the cartilage in my ribs, so it was like a shock. I felt the pop and then I just didn’t know how bad it was until after the fight when I got x-rays.” He also said he broke his nose in the 1st round And then it gets worse.... “It probably was [one of my worst training camps],” Pettis said. “That bad. There was a lot of personal stuff that was going on in that camp that, it threw my mental off. “Any little errors in your camp can reflect in the fight and that’s what happened, I think. I’ve been fighting for a long time, so I’ve known training camps don’t always go as planned but you try to make it as smooth as possible. That one wasn’t.” And the best excuse of them all Honestly, for the Poirier fight, I warmed up at like 3 p.m. [and felt good] before the fight. If I would’ve fought Poirier at 3 p.m., I would’ve smoked him. And then, coming out at midnight when we fought out there, I just was flat This guy is 2-5 during the USADA era what's his excuse for that? I don't like him or Chiesa and have no interest in this fight. Showtime is over. Shame he never fought Aldo during their peaks.
