Kingsbury fought flu symptons to get UFC 126 win

by Dann Stupp | source:

Two days after UFC 126, Kyle Kingsbury was still feeling it.

"It" being an illness that drained him throughout fight week – not any lingering effects of the actual fight itself, which lasted a mere 21 seconds.

Despite a fever that saw him awake to soaked sheets prior to his fight, Kingsbury (10-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) dismantled ground specialist Ricardo Romero (11-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) to pick up his third consecutive win under the UFC banner.

"I actually had a really bad fever the night before the fight," a still-recovering Kingsbury told Radio ( on Monday. "I did a steam room that I'm not used to doing to cut weight because I came in at about 224.5 (pounds) at the beginning of the week on Tuesday, and I like to be about 220."
