If they disallowed anyone with any form of herpes to compete, they'd undoubtedly be culling a large percentage of their roster. It's amazing how many people get "cold sores" and think nothing of it but then turn around and panic when someone says they have herpes.

cold sores are herpes virus (HSV) in the mouth. There are several strains and many of them can infect (and then go dormant for long periods) either the genitals or the mouth.

genital warts are actually a completely different virus, HPV, which is also very common.

Gray is awesome. Takes it all in stride. No big deal here but it makes me wonder how the UFC and the athletic commission handle stuff like this.

That is not true. "Sores" can be caused by a wound or infection by many different diseases. "Pimples" can be caused by anything from hormones to clogged pores to ingrown hairs and don't necessarily have anything to do with a virus much less herpes.

type 1 and 2 herpes are the kind we're talking about here, and they certainly do cause the common cold sore, the exact type of lesions gray is experiencing. The other six types are in the herpes family but the symptoms are quite different. obviously we're not talking about chicken pox or mononucleosis.
