    This is why fighters shouldn't train between fights. They should just go from fight to fight with no training, so they won't get hurt.

    (i'm kidding)

    I can see that working Cobra. Or they could do what you do in football which is lay up right before they fight. The week before a fight you're not going to gain a whole lot by doing full contact sparring sessions.

    tyler ur a fag for bashing a fighter thats pulling out of a fight for an injury. Its pretty obvious kos fights anyone at anytime especially when he took that beating from alves and then faught a few weeks later. ur prolly sittin in front of ur computer chokin down some cookies right now. kos has more heart and talent in his left nut than you do in your entire body.

    Toe injuries hurt a lot. you're on your feet all of the time and the nagging pain that goes with it sometimes unbearable. This is why 300 lbs linemen in the NFL usually don't play if a foot injury occurs. It is as a legit injury as any other.
