Josh Thomson reflected on his octagon fight with former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. ‘The Punk’ described the aftermath of his three-round war with ‘El Cucuy’ in the latest episode of the Weighing In podcast.
“I kid you not, I lost so much blood in that fight that when I got back to the locker room, I was shivering and I stripped down to my underwear, tried to shower, and couldn’t stop shivering for 30 minutes.” I was shivering there, freezing cold, and I was in an arena that wasn’t particularly cold, you know? I was just back there trying to get all of the blood off of me and I couldn’t stand it any longer. Crazy Bob, one of my managers, had to put his hand on me to hold me up because I was holding one hand on the wall, letting the water run off of me, I was stitched all the way up everywhere… I was just dehydrated from everything. ”
