It appears that Anthony Pettis didn't escape UFC 181 without an injury after all, at least according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Some manage to be engineered well and have all the requisite luck to maintain the proper amount of quality. When card integrity is held in place, there's not much to complain about. Tonight's event is pretty fantastic, at least as far as the paying portion of the event is concerned. There are plenty of stakes, familiar names, killer rematches, grudge bouts and mo read news >>
