During an appearance on Monday’s edition of The Anik and Florian podcast, SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh revealed for the first time that Conor McGregor was dealing with health issues going into his ill-fated first bout with Nate Diaz. Host Kenny Florian, a former UFC title challenger, claimed he had heard rumours that McGregor was suffering through a staph infection at the time and he asked Kavanagh about these murmurings directly. “He was,” answered the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. http://www.punditarena.com/mmaufc/sraftery/john-kavanagh-2/ Interesting could that be the reason he fatigued so quickly in just two rounds? I don't believe this is a lie i heard rumors about this prior to the fight with Nate. I heard on podcasts Conor had a health issue prior to the fight.
