I'm hearing rumors like crazy that he had a concussion going into the fight and was dropped twice in sparring the previous week. And the rumour that his dad wanted the fight called off but Eddie intervened.
People have been making a lot of comparisons between AJ and Mclellan when Gman fought Benn. The blinking, unable to hold a mouth piece, etc.. very scary stuff. I don't think it was a panic attack as much as it was something much more serious. He apparently had acupuncture marks on his cheeks before the fight which is apparently used in treating concussions. A doctor was also administering a massage on the back of his neck before it started.
What do you guys think?
