Before this fight, he was saying that this is the best camp he's ever had, best he ever felt, etc...now it's, personal problems, overstrained, bla bla.
Yes but absolutely all fighters do that.
Before the fight they ALWAYS say that they are in their best shape ever, that they had the best training camp, that they are more healthy and motivated than ever etc etc
After the fight they reveal that it was not the truth.
I do not know if they say all that stuff before the fight because Zuffa ask them to do it, so people get more hyped, or they simply do not want to give any clues to their opponents. But fact is that after a very hard 10 week training camp, it is almost impossible to come 100% healthy.
