Says USADA provided a bottle that cut his hand prior to the fight.

I said on recent thread that very few pro athletes in any sport ever fully recover from that type of knee injury. The reality is that it is highly unlikely that GSP will ever really be the same as before the injury, his knee most likely will never perform as it did before the injury. I hope the best for him and of course there are always exceptions to the rule but percentage wise it's not in his favor. If he ever he injures the knee again it's probably the beginning of the end.

This shit is pathetic.  Dude is suing because he couldn't close a little lid on a bottle without cutting his thumb.  

His coach even wanted to stop the fight over this.  Wtf.  

Pettis gets hurt so easily he can't even close a bottle without getting injured.  Now he's suing over it LOL

Could have easily affected his ability to punch and grapple. Depending how deep it was, it can do real damage. At the end of the day though, if he wins from USADA and gets paid, I think everyone should be happy for him.

How much is he expecting to get from this? Six figures? And then what, the UFC lets him fight out his contract and not make him an offer to renew.

We are starting to see guys fight back at USADA any way they can.  This may be a lot less about a cut than it is about a lot of the other stuff fighters are unhappy with USADA about.

I cut my palm opening a 1.25L bottle of Sada Water. I complained to the Shop. Thay requested the batch number from the bottle. I gave them the batch number & 2 weeks later I got a $20 voucher for the shop in the mail.

the whole procedure is setup so WADA/USADA has no responsebility during the drugs test, cause if they touch the bottle and the athlete test positive, the blame it on the collection company, in this case USADA.

Pettis doesn't stand a chance suing USADA over this, cause he signed the WADA code, including a waiver, you can't sue USADA and the UFC over drug testing

Ridiculous shill.

If the bottle they gave him was faulty he should sue 100%.
