Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Had Staph Infection In UFC 92 Fight

New, 5 comments

According to Dana White from a radio interview with Dave Carmichael and reported by FiveOuncesofPain:

UFC President Dana White was a special guest on Monday’s edition of "The Carmichael Dave" show on Sports 1140 AM KHTK in Sacramento and offered his breakdown of UFC 92. During the course of the interview, White revealed that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira suffered from staph infection leading up to his interim UFC heavyweight title defense vs. Frank Mir

While this by no means takes anything away from Frank Mir, it does give some answers as to why 'Minotauro' seemed so lethargic in his performance.
