    I think he got pricked by a flu needle or something.

    Yeah and look how that turned out. All to often people hear flu and think cold. Flu is horrible to have. I've had it good and proper and was bed bound for a week. You think that's conducive to the life of a pro fighter?!

    Alvarez is scared shitless to lose and will only fight if he is 100%.

    i thought he did fine considering who he was fighting. what was he supposed to do, stand still in front of lombard and trade punches? or grapple with him? who even gave him a chance against hector, even at 100%?

    This.

    Drives me absolutely nuts when people said "I was off work yesterday, had the flu". Oh so you had influenza did you? No, you didn't. Legit flu is fucking awful. A cold is like a walk in the park on a summers day by comparison

    Agreed. We literally have no info so it's funny people are taking shots at him.

    What if hes lost like 20 lbs of weight because he can't eat/can't hold anything down? 2 weeks before a fight that is not something you want I'm pretty sure.

    I know the difference. My thought process is that 2 weeks from the fight you are pretty much done with training camp & now its weight cutting time, which being bedridden & sick/not eating soilds, will only help you do.

    yes, i'm kidding.

    Bless you, mods.

    But yeah, TS, he's sick with the flu. The legit flu is nasty and can knock you out for at least a week, and you don't want to be recovering on fight week.
