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.”
â€œThe only thing he [Markham] said to me was “That was the worst weight cut I’ve ever done…I know what hell is like.”
â€œI’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.â€ [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.
