I'm a big fan of Ace but I think this flu thing is really thin! If Ace was that sick and Dana White let him fight knowing it, I'm pretty sure NSAC would chew his a$$ out! I think the reason Rich didn't look himself was more personal then physical. What was going on with his life prior to 64 I don't think will ever know unless Rich tells us.
Besides, even if he had personal problems that still doesn't change the fact that he went in there with a bad game plan. Rich said that the clinch was his sweet spot. He thought that if he got into a clinch with Anderson he would be able to break out of it!
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
