what's you foundation for that one? a retarded opinion i have to assume.
For many people that break/fracture parts of there body the area that damage occured in is often sensitive and sometimes suffers from less movement do to bone repair growth. When bones break they tend to set by over healing. My pinky finger for example has a bit to much grow back around the knuckle after having it broken while grappling. It has a smaller range of motion and is sensitive (yes I did see a doctor before and after it healed completely).
(whether or not Rich was ill during his last fight) Rich threw very few crosses in his last fight agianst Silva. It's my guess that he may not throw that many in his fight coming up agianst Macdonald. Another factor is his once broken nose. The bone might still be tender in that area and getting hit there could be sensitive. Also the fear of being hit often plays into a lot of fighters minds after having had an injury to the face.
It's all my opinion but as I stated in my last post "I'm not sure". He could walk out onto the Octogan, be perfectly fine and tare Macdonald apart like the "Ace" of old.
