You know whats funny.
I made a post in the "Post fight conference" thread that said "Did he give an injury excuse about why he lost yet??? If not im sure its coming soon enough."
And here it is...
Took longer then i thought.
Only thing missing was
"Im not making any excuses BUT"
Maybe it just took him this long to make up an injury that sounded bad enough to make people feel for him, but not bad enough to be easily perceived as a lie.
