AN MMA fighter made a shocking health admission in his post-fight interview on Monday night.

Joel Bauman beat Reese Forest at the Fury FC 61 event in Texas.

But what he said after the fight left MMA viewers scratching their heads.

The 30-year-old fighter lost his last fight in February before his bounce win this week.

And he admitted: «The last fight I was tired, I was exhausted.

“I am about to release this NFT that is going to change the fighting game. And I put in a whole 30 nights before that fight.

“I had herpes before that fight, two outbreaks in the span of a week.

“I’m here, I’m healthy, come on, whatever. Does not matter”.

His opponent in February, Josh Fremd, saw the clip of the interview on social media and weighed in.

Fremd said: “I would comment on this because I’m the guy who fought him last.

“But I think you’ve said enough: This shit is now viral in more ways than one.”
