Roy Nelson had a bit of pneumonia

Maybe Roy Nelson’s terrible performance on Saturday had more to it than just ring rust and excessive fatness:

Via text messages with Cagewriter, Jessy Nelson said that her husband had walking pneumonia during the first two weeks of May, and that he spent Monday in a Las Vegas hospital. “He described the feeling like someone is taking a big scab off of his lungs,” Nelson wrote.

Nelson had mentioned a bug he picked up in Canada City from UFC 129. Walking pneumonia is basically a milder version of pneumonia, a bacterial lung infection. If that already doesn’t sound like something you want going into a fight, add in flu symptoms, tiredness, and weakness. Not too shabby of an excuse! Think Dana White will buy it and cut Nelson some slack?

    Doesn’t that happen when you get too much bacon and beer in your lungs?  I keed, I keed.

    Will this appease The Dana?  Will he get props from the WhiteMan for not pulling out of an already injury-laden card?  Will he get with Dolce to improve his game despite this being the reason for his sad display?

    Also being a fat fuck doesn’t help much either.

    Cut that mullet and he’ll probably drop 10 pounds.

    You know what really doesn’t help fight pneumonia?  Obesity.
