    Created this thread so I could post this here - Nunes says she's still feeling the effects of her chronic sinusitis and not training at 100% (fight 5 weeks out)

    http://www.tsn.ca/video/nunes-explains-why-she-had-to-withdraw-from-ufc-213~1175119

    "Even right now I don't have 100% breathing. It's hard for me to sleep. I can't control this. Especially when you travel. Even in training it bothers me. I haven't been able to train 100%."

    UFC 213 was 2.5 weeks ago.

    --------------------------------------------------

    Reddit is calling bulls*t from people with the condition -

    "as somone who has had chronic sinusitis for over ten years (had to get surgery for it), this is total bullshit.. antibiotics for 10 days (max) would have cleared it up..it sounds like she is prepping excuses."

    "Yup, same here. Any time my sinusitis flares up I get a scrip for antibiotics and I'm felling better within a day of two and completely fine after 7-10 days."

    Just bought my tickets! I went to the UFC 'worst PPV in company history' 149 in Calgary, AB so hoping karma is with me on this one.

    Will be lurking in here harder than ever for some good tips. Let's get it guys!!

    This is bullshit in certain cases. When I get sinus headaches antibiotics don't do shit (especially not 10 days worth) maybe they'll work the first couple of times but if you get them 2-3 times a year antibiotics don't work as well.

    When I get bad sinus headaches the pressure/pain is seriously unbearable, I have a Statex prescription and had to get morphine drips multiple times for the pain.

    Lol at internet tough guys thinking they are tougher than someone who punches people in the mouth for a living. Amanda is a tough SOB, I have no reason to think she is not telling the truth.

    What is the point of having MM fight anyone else at 125? Does anyone actually think Borg can be competitive? He's gonna look like he's stuck in mud like everyone else does that fights MM (aside from maybe Dodson to a degree). We need MM vs winner of Cody/TJ or MM vs Dom.

    How much did you pay for the tickets? I'm thinking about getting a couple tomorrow when they are available for everyone. I don't really want to pay 300 for the nosebleeds...

    Range is $70 to ~$400. Once you get through the web of "convenience" fees and all that crap you'll be looking at somewhere around $100+ for upper bowl.

    Pretty interested in this card for betting. Heavy play on Martins. Maybe heavy on Bhullar if the line's right. Tucker-Glenn and Latifi-Pedro will be fun to analyze too.

    Honestly considering dropping $1k on Martins even if he's at -$1000. It'd be worth a free hundred bucks. Looks like they're just trying to get him back on track after a loss.

    I really like watching MM but he does himself no favours at all. I mean, he says he's P4P #1, he's cleaned out the division. Finally they offer him a fight everyone will be talking about and excited to see and he ruins it. MM v TJ would have been awesome and would have sold. Now he fights Borg, who doesn't have fans, nor can he win. Pointless.

    I hope MM goes up after this or accepts the TJ bout at 125, though that's doubtful as he'll end up fighting Cody.

    MM is just looking at getting a record number of title defences right now. I agree with you, him vs Dillashaw would have been the fight to make.

    RDA vs Magny brings with it a 6-inch height delta, and a 10-inch reach delta. Might want to wait until after weigh-ins to bet this one knowing how Magny deals with pressure.

    No doubt shes a tough SOB but i wonder how many fighters would love to have the worst thing wrong with them is a sinus infection? Im guessing 50% of fighters entering the cage on fight night have something worse than a sinus infection. Perhaps higher? I actually agree with dana i think it was mostly something mental going on

    Maybe I'm just a pussy but I'd get headaches that stopped me from functioning, wouldn't go away without something strong.

    i have chronic sinusitus and my sinuses go ballistic every time i do any cardio exercise. i can't even imagine what it's like going through a 25 minute fight when you're already on the wrong side of the cardio equation.
