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.

They just have to look at the health bar at the top. Have you never noticedż

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

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

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%

This crap is like DBZ and their power levels

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

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