News Ricky Turcios was hospitalized 2 days before fight against Raul Rosas Jr. due to Staph

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.
if you follow alexa grasso on insta she always shows videos of herself and others cleaning mats down after training... so its really not that hard.
 
Sounds like he's been hanging out with Big Nog too much.
Nah not really


If Nog says something happened to him, everyone gotta eat it. Guy's been piledriven on his head by Sapp, turned into street pizza by Fedor, run over buy a truck.

so anytime you see someone say huurrr durrr big book of something, just BAM hit him right in the mouth or slug em in the cock.

Seriously why don’t gyms clean their fucking mats??

Islam had staph too.
Its unavoidable.

The mats get clean and then people roll on them.

The time people roll on them,shit happens.

Every place I ever trained at always clean the mats, and every once in a while someone gets something still.
 


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.”


"No excuses!!

But, hang on, I have prepared a list..."
 
At this point we should just be assuming both fighters were sick or injured during camp. The winner just doesn't often mention it like Islam did.

Well everyone saw he had staph before he ever talked about it. Hiding in plain sight?
 
Still tried to win
If you are gonna make exuses than pull out
Don't try to win and if you fail just name your excuse
 
IMO pro fighters just spend that much more time in the gym than your average enthusiast, so they are that much more likely to catch staph.

everyone has staph on their skin. its part of the normal flora. even strains like MRSA can be carried by people who have perfect skin

-some people are more prone to it
-weight cutting kills your immune system
-staph usually needs an entry point to cause problems, like a cut or abrasion.

yes washing does help. but doesn't prevent in 100%
 
It looks so weak to mention this now. Either have a buddy leak it (also weak, but at least, you're making an effort) or don't ever mention it to anyone and eat the L like it tastes good.
? Honesty is weakness? Having a buddy leak it is complete dishonesty. Either way, acknowledge the loss and that's it. Beyond that ask for a rematch if it bothers you so. I wouldn't watch either of these guys fight, just based on how they look haha, let alone their childish arguments. Stop being cunts children haha.

No matter what, just wash your filthy self afterwards. People who sit around covered in each other's biological waste are... filthy. And yes there's plenty of guys out there who are filthy cunts.

Yeah, honesty is weakness when it makes excuses for your shortcomings and takes away from your opponent's victory.

Apparently he got the sub so no need for judges is good. If it takes away from the victory that's for the person experiencing that to decide. They can both learn from it, in my opinion.
