Anthony Pettis: I was only fighting at 69%

OK he didn't really say that but he did say this:

Quote:
“You know what, my knee was fine, but I actually separated my shoulder two weeks before the fight. So, going into the fight I had a separated right shoulder. My jitz coach rolled a little too hard and he slammed me on my shoulder, and I separated my shoulder two weeks before the fight. The last two weeks before the camp all I could do was roll really light. I couldn’t spar. For me it was just a mental thing. I’ve been through that before. It sucks that it happened two before the fight, but I wasn’t backing out of that one.”

Training and sparring I get injured all the time. Little nicks, mild contusions, muscle spasms, that sort of thing. I'm almost certain by now if you're over 50% you're good to go.

Why do I have a feeling that this is going to turn out be some new form of meme.

No way. He looked like he was at least 73% out there.

I think it was closer to 74.2%, but that may be a rounding error.

He was fighting at 68% but the humidity made it feel like 71%

I was only at 55% in bed but I shot really far so that kinda makes up for it.
