Tommy Morrison in MMA Debut

Interesting story. Ex-heavyweight champion who tested HIV+ 11 years ago takes on MMA guy with a 100lb weight advantage. Morrison says he has done no specific MMA training and is only worried what he will do to the MMA guy with the light gloves:

Interestingly, he says that all his subsequent HIV tests have been negative.

Yes, it's possible, if his blood gets into a cut of the other guy, or into the guy's eye or mouth.

He seems to think he isn't HIV+ and that the first test was wrong. I guess the guy he is fighting thinks the same, or probably be wouldn't be fighting.
