Are any there any Ufc fighters with the Herpes thing ?

Being that A LOT of fighters come from wrestling and this thing is pretty commun in htis environment, do you know if there any that does have it?

Thanks in advance

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

First off if you mean the thing from TUF this season, go to the sub forum and there is a thread about it otherwise check this article:
http://mmajunkie.com/news/4162/paul-...-departure.mma

Apparently its very prevalent in wrestling and college wrestling and he would have been cleared up after two days of meds and it would take 6-12 months to come back. Kind of irks me that Dana did what he did given that info.

It was more a question if there was any fighter with the same condition fighting in the UFC. Thats why i posted it here since it would reveal a lot of double standard from the part of Dana White..

Okay, wasn't sure. It would seem according to him a lot have it. But then again who really knows.

And I don't think there are because if you have that stuff and fight in the UFC you will definately be stressed (Octagon Jitters if you will) and can pass it on to other fighters. So I am sure the UFC doctors check for stuff like that....therefore, I would guess, no there are no UFC fighters with it.


LOL didn't refresh my page and see the other ppl who mentioned what I just did.

I'm sure they're are more. I know a kid who was state wrestling champ in Minnesota a few years in a row. He said its around everywhere. His name is TJ Parlin he was 130lb champ I think? Especially those with a wrestling background. Some wrestlers and and the local dirty teenager you and your buddies passed around

The UFC doctors would only know if they actually had a break out at the time of their physical. I'm willing to bet that there are many others with the same thing. This is passed around by rolling/wrestling. If anyone has it, they can easily pass it on to others. This is not the sexually transmitted type. This is contracted through skin contact. In the wrestling/grappling world this stuff is wide spread. So I disagree and think that there are probably plenty of guys in the UFC that have this.

Good point, and I guess you're right but it would suck getting a break out and passing that "stuff" to someone only to have it stick with you for life. lol

I would love them to do stress tests and see if any current UFC fighters get those breakouts and if they do, cut them from the roster. I would not want to fight someone with that herpes rash.

Did not know that, so does that mean if someone takes it before a fight, it would not break it and be contagious? If so that's not that bad as long as the infected person takes all the necessary precautions.
