    Asked if he had any physical problem before the fight he lost the belt, Anderson revealed the injury.
    - It was good to talk about it, because I was really hurt. So far no one had touched on this subject, but this is no excuse for my performance. Was slightly below the rib that I had fractured before the first fight against Sonnen. And that's it. I was 85% of my physical condition.

    At the time of the duel, many sites reported the injury, a fact denied by fighter team.

    That's the first thing that came to mind, lol. He also recently told the media that Jones is his copy.

    What does his rib have to do with him dropping his hands, under estimating his opponent and getting clocked on the chin?

    Nothing, but they asked him about it so he answered. Notice how there were rumors about it being hurt before and then it was never mentioned until he was asked.

    That was my initial impression.

    Too bad Anderson isn't fluent in English. The trolling leading up to both Chael fights wouldve been legendary.
