… in the ER with a knee infection and flu like symptoms.

Ricky Turcios apparently told Raul Rosas Jr. that he had staph infection after their UFC on ESPN 57 clash on Saturday.

Rosas Jr. settled his rivalry with Turcios with a second-round submission win at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky. The 19-year-old survived a rear naked choke attempt in the first round and locked in one of his own in the next round to force the tap.

Rosas Jr. later revealed the words he exchanged with Turcios in the Octagon following the win. The rivalry between the two started with their original booking at UFC Mexcio City this past February. Rosas Jr. pulled out of the fight moments before walking out, as he couldn’t recover from a bout of sickness despite his best efforts. Turcios was unhappy with Rosas Jr. for pulling out and slammed his opponent for disrespecting the “Bushido code.”

Rosas Jr. and Turcios once again brought up the subject after their UFC Louisville clash on Saturday. That eventually led to Turcios telling Rosas Jr. that he had staph infection leading up to this fight. Rosas Jr. believes it was dumb of Turcios to have showed up if he really had staph infection and hopes that the 31-year-old won’t use it as an excuse for the loss. “El Nino Problema” further noted that he didn’t fight at UFC Mexico City to avoid this type of situation.

“I was like, ‘You disrespected me first, yo… You disrespected by over here saying that I pulled out, this or that.’ And he was like, ‘No you disrespected me first by breaking the Bushido code or whatever,’” Rosas Jr. said during a post-fight media scrum. “And then I was like, ‘Bro that’s something I couldn’t control you know, I was sick.’

“He told me he was sick as well. He told me he had staph this week, his knee, whatever whatever. But hopefully he doesn’t use that as an excuse. That’s the reason why I didn’t step out in Mexico City. If I would have stepped out in Mexico City, I wasn’t gonna bring up that I was sick. If I had lost in Mexico City, I was gonna leave it at that. So you know if he was really sick and had staph and went out there I think it was just a dumb decision.“

Two days? How did he recover so fast and would there have been a risk or spreading that all over the mat?

Sounds like this dude:

Despite the disappointing losses, Perez says the biggest feeling he has after seven UFC outings is frustration. Because he had to perform under some difficult conditions for some of those bouts, Maluko still believes his record could have been a different one. Looking back, though, the Brazilian is not sure if they were the best decisions for his career.

“The feeling is frustration, no matter what. I’m a better fighter than that,” Perez said. “Those were three fights I shouldn’t have lost. In Sao Paulo (when I fought Wellington Turman), the mother of my child told me she was pregnant in a rude way and my head wasn’t in the right place. The next fight, I cut my finger one week before the fight and fought with 16 stitches on my finger. I wore a bandage so nobody would see it. In my last fight, I was in bed for four days with a sore throat. I was in bad shape, I couldn’t even train. It hindered my cardio. Could I have won? Sure, but why do those things happen? You can’t explain it. Maybe it’s something divine making me ready for something bigger down the line.”

Don't care. Pull out if it's going to impact your abilities. Otherwise keep it to yourself.

Sorry, but if it was bad enough to significantly diminish his performance he should have pulled out. Rosas did it for their last one. After fight excuses do nothing but look like you're makin excuses.
 
Seriously why don’t gyms clean their fucking mats??

Islam had staph too.
Many fighters have been saying it's in the end the fighter's fault for not washing after training but I'm no medical professional. I know Chael said (for however much you trust what he says) that he's never gotten it because he makes sure he keeps good hygiene. Rogan I think has said it in the past and uses soap after rolling meant for preventing staph. I'm sure many fighters leave training and sit around rather than showering right after.
