Rich Franklin Illness?

Has anyone heard the rumors that the reason Rich Franklin looked different coming into the ring was because he had a serious case of the flu along with vomiting and diarrhie in the days going into the fight?

Didnt he just come out of a staph infection?..or was that a while back.....That could play a factor as to why he was lookin a lil gloomy but i dont think a staph infection lasts that long =S correct me if im wrong im just guessing.

I hear what your saying but trust me dana would not of let rich pull out unless he had a something like a broken arm or something. dana is not going to let rich pull out for the flue. he did look prety bad walking to the ring and in the pre fight interview
