Rory Markham Fought with a Collapsed Lung at UFC 95   [View Full Version]
Wolfenstein » Posted 12/13/07 3:31:00AM

According to Sheridan's post on mixedmartialarts.com:

Rory's a friend of mine, and he's NOT making any excuses, but this is a pretty crazy story. He had a terrible weight cut in London, and cramped so badly after the weigh-ins that one of his lungs collapsed. He didn't even know it. He just said he was feeling pretty shitty.

Thats some crazy ****. Markham must be a tough MF but still he got TKO'ed in under a minute so its hard to say if it hinderd him thaty badly.

I don't think this had any affect on the outcome of the fight. Markham's style is fun the watch but it cost him sometimes and that's what happened in this fight.

Yeah he is a kill or be killed type of fighter I dont think he really seems to care which one, as long as its a good fight.

How the hell did he get through his pre-fight medical check up with a collapsed lung? Surely somebody would of noticed?

Either way, guess its a good job Hardy put him away early to avoid any further damage to his lung.

he must be a tough dude knowing it could potentially have been bad but imo it still didnt affect anything

if i would have known that info before i would HAVE PICKED HARDY TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If he did fight with that injury then it was out of stupidity. There's no reason for him to fight with that injury. I really hate when athletes just can't admit to being injured. It's not like we as MMA fans would've lumped Markham in with Parisyan for pulling out of the fight.

I hope nobody tries to take anything away from Hardy's performance after this 'revelation'
