Neil Magny revealed that he woke up sick on Saturday morning, which was quite frustrating for him and his team. However, things turned even worse after he started to vomit constantly.

During an interaction with MMA on Sirius XM, Magny said, “ I don’t know what is it that I ate last night before but I woke up Saturday morning sick as a dog. Like I was just like ‘What the heck is going on here’

He added, “I got up, and I went to the shakeout.”

“I just laid and within 10 minutes of laying down I was like I gotta throw up

“I just entered the bathroom, and I was puking left and right and I was like okay, this is not good. I was not being able to hold down anything.”

However, Magny had his coaches’ backup, and they did their best to bring him back on track. No wonder it tensed the welterweight prodigy, as he was about to face an eminent fighter in Robbie Lawler. Despite that, he overcame every adversary to emerge out victorious.

“I was like freaking out mentally, Oh my god, I am gonna go and fight against a guy who is a heavy hitter and here I am just being completely dehydrated and depleted like “how this is gonna work”

“It was not a good feeling,” told Magny.
