Rory Markham’s friend and author of “A Fighters Heart”, Sam Sheridan:
“He had a terrible weight cut in London, and cramped so badly after the weigh-ins that one of his lungs collapsed. He didn’t even know it. He just said he was feeling pretty shitty … After the knock-out, he got x-rayed, and the Doc said “Can I X-ray your chest, it looks weird”?” and Rory said sure, and they said “You have a collapsed lung.”
“The only thing he [Markham] said to me was “That was the worst weight cut I’ve ever done…I know what hell is like.”
“I’m not making excuses for him, and Rory definitely isn’t–he knows it wasn’t his night. Dan Hardy’s a tough guy. But that is some crazy shit. [In my opinion] he’s got to make the switch to 185.” [Underground Forum]
Markham spent two days in London for observation and is on 120 day medical suspension. For more information on a collapsed lung check this out.
