mikey Burnett

I am sure you have all noticed Mikey Burnett's wandering eyes? Does anyone know what causes him to have nystagmus? (the wandering of his eyes) Does he have visual or balance problems?

He believe he mentioned a substance abuse problem as well. I don't really know the details of his personal life, he seems to have overcome it and he's on the right track again. Well, besides his really disappointing loss to Thomas anyway.

reply to mikey burnett

Thanks for the reply. I'll look up the side affects to alcoholism. I wondered, because people with nystagmus generally have visual and balance problems, and mikey burnett has excellent balance on his feet! If you find out more, I'm interested. Thanks again, Lynnette

I was hoping Mikey would've won his fight on the show. I remember when I first started watching the UFC, he was fighting. And he was kicking ass. He seems like a cool dude.
