I can list off all kinds of excuses from people who have lost fights. Johny Hendricks didn't train with the right sparring partners. Chris Weidman had a broken foot. Tito had a cracked skull. Sage had strep throat etc etc etc. I can't tell you nearly as much about Wonderboy, Rockhold, Forrest, Bryan Barberena and the condition of the other people who win. There's no way they were perfect. I do think Rockhold mentioned his injuries in response to Weidman, but otherwise they're generally silent. Props to winners for generally keeping it classy. But in the long run, I guess that's what winners do.
