    He's had back issues for a while now. That shit can flare up pretty much at random.

    It's a recurring back injury. Gone one minute and back there the next.

    Anybody who has dealt with that shit can attest to the legitimacy of the excuse.

    But, Lewis should go get doctored up before he fights again.

    No, he needs a rest and a back massage.

    Dude is an athlete and he was injured.

    Cut him some slack.

    This isn't ladies golf.

    These mofos train hard and shit happens.

    Would you have been happier if he showed up injured and rolled over for his show money?

    So you would rather see a lackluster fight, with an injured fighter, than a true test of skill and ability?

    That is the mindset of someone who should be watching "Bum Fights" on YouTube instead of MMA.

    Cut? No. But he should've be re-booked until he gets that back taken care of.

    Absolutely this.

    I injured my back 4 years ago (I'm 33 now) and I no longer do manual labor. The smallest twist can aggravate it to almost crippling levels. Very small amounts of weight, without absolutely perfect lifting technique, can aggravate it. It is more or less a lifelong issue and can be aggravated by nearly nothing.

    he just needs to stay retired imo, his back is obviously pretty wrecked at this point. He entirely stiffened up in the Mark Hunt fight
