    Thats fucking bullshit, so he used pain killers sometime before he fought, who gives a fuck, no one in his right mind is going to take pain killers the same day of the fight, it would have been way worst for him… some people just have to learn hands on and understand shit like this just doesnt make since, learn some MMA…..
