Gray Maynard fight’s Ross Pearson this Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 47, but with all of the talk that he has a glass chin and Maynard wants to put that talk to an end.
“Did I get completely knocked out cold and stiff? No. I got clipped,” Maynard said. “They attacked me good, and I stood up (right after). Obviously if you take a lot like that, you’re going to be out of it, but I’ve never been out cold.”
“That’s the great part about it. Saturday night, he can put that to the test, and I can guarantee I’m going to put his chin to the test. Let’s just see.”
