I think he was struggling with his ankle if I am not mistaken; he was not 100pct exactly. It's mentioned in his biography as hampering his mobility that season, along with the comment that against anyone other than Connors, it was not much of a hindrance. Against Jimmy, he had to be able to step it up a notch (or two) and that just wasn't possible w/out being 100pct physically.
That match was spotty, for sure, but it definitely held your interest. Very much a roller coaster.
