Re: Ufc 96
jackson hurt his hand in the last fight and wont be ready.
Honestly, this is much better for him. He looked very slugish in that last fight. Gassed too early, wasnt crisp with his punches and didnt have the movement he has had in the past. When he said in his post fight interview that he had overtrained, it all made sense.
But then they want him to fight for the title what? 8 weeks later? So he is overtrained and now has to start another camp for the title shot. Wouldnt be a good idea. Even without his injury, he needs a good 3 weeks just to recharge. THEN start his camp for the title shot. A hand injury just makes it easier for him to do what he needed to do anyways.
