    Both were nowhere near 100%, but they stepped up and went to war.

    It's a lot easier when your the co-main, and your opponent isn't the GOAT with the touch of death, who said he will embarrass you in front of the peoples of your nation, the people he claimed you betrayed. RDA is under a lot more pressure than either of those 2, I would pull out faster than my dad did in his marriage to my mom if I were him too.

    I want to know which of Weidman's feet were injured. I knew something was wrong. For Luke too.

    Holy hell the rematch is going to be spectacular.

    Yet Weidman has pulled out way more than RDA?

    This forum's disgusting bias against Latin American fighters is easily detectable.

    I bet Weidman was 100%

    Just got smashed by a fighter who was better than him and actually in their prime

    And when he got embarrassed he came out with an essay of excuses

    I honestly like a bunch of Latin fighters, but their current run of pulling out of huge fights is getting ridiculous

    I get what you're saying, but like RondaDrowsy said, it's hard to fault RDA for withdrawing with a broken foot. It sucks it happened, and I wish he'd been more careful, but that's not an injury you can fight with. You'd lose your ability to punch and shoot for takedowns properly, not to mention not being able to kick...

    Not sure about a bias against Latin American fighters, but your first point is bang on. Weidman has pulled out of a ton of fights. Hardly the poster boy for fighting through injuries.

    All fighters are more or less bruised or hurt come fight time

    If you say Weidman wasn't injured you can't very well believe the thing about the Staph infection can you?

    Some of you guys are pretty lopsided
