It was clear to me tbh. He was a fvcking rake! His strikes had no pop whatsoever too. I didn't read it anywhere before I said it either. Look how he dealt with Gil Melendez, who also tried to tie him up like Alvarez did. Gil can take a dig, but Pettis was lighting him up left right and center. Alvarex was walking through his strikes, and Alvarez isnt superman.
