    He was 100% for the other 2 fights aswell…that’s what they all say. Let’s just hope this time, it’s true for both of them.

    • UFC 84 Forever says:

      Well one of those fights he knocked Cain out but I agree. People always say they’re 100% until they lose. Hope both of them are truly 100% for this fight!
