Hes not dealing with it at all actually. It wouldnt be a bad idea for him to seek out some kind of counciling. His family is too close to the situation to help him through the retirement process and coming to terms with himself as a person. Its also very possible that subconsciously he thinks he deserves to get beaten up if he cant win.
Very interesting analysis. I wish RJJ had retired after he beat Ruiz.
