Ever notice how guys always seem to get the flu, though? Sylvia, Franklin... I get the flu maybe once every two or three years and I'm out of shape. What are these guys getting exposed to?
Good point. In fact the training these guys do actually makes them somewhat more susceptible to disease as they run their bodies ragged at peak training. I would not be surprised if Franklin had the flu, it makes sense seeing as how this was the biggest fight of his UFC career and all, things always seem to come against you at your steepest hill...
