This seems like a pre-fight excuse.

He knows in his heart he can't beat Matt, so he's going to play nice guy now.

or maybe he's trying to trick Matt into thinking he's gone soft.

It might be a vent, it might be anger, it might be competative drive...

When they get older, the above reserves appear to begin to dry up. In some way they seem to heal their own ills over the years....IMHO despite what they say, and they often say counter to this...I reckon a lot of them looose the psychological will to fight. They may wish to still fight...but what MADE them fight when they were younger, is no longer there...mixed with the fact their bodies are begining to pack up on them, making the competative angle somewhat difficult...this isnt true for everyone...but Its certainly true for some of them...understand they may still have a drive to compete, but no longer a psychological reason to...so when they try...they may continually fail, they are in essence...far to much at peace, and though they wish to continue, deep inside their psyche something has changed. Its very strange...but over a very long time, the fight game seems to heal them of the ill that drove them too it in the first place.
Really?

  • He genuinely admires Matt. I follow BJ and he has shown lately nothing, but respect to him and I love it. I think as a fan we want to look for bad in someone who is fighting or has defeated our fighter...

It wasnt like a three round domination that requires a sharp intake of breath...people are blowing it all out of proportion

Mark my words...He's better going back to lightweight before he faces someone he cant get motivated for, he cant expect all his opponents to catch a stray punch...Time will vindicate me grasshopper

yeah like he genuinely admires Jens Pulver.

I wish I could forgive so easily, and trust so wholeheartedly...but I cant.
