Dana White answered a question about GSP the other day and was very blase about Georges being out of competition. He mentioned ‘Colitis’ and moved on. If you are like me and have no idea what that is; You said ‘cool’ and moved on.
Colitis is inflammation of the colon and it is wildly uncomfortable. It also comes with many horrible symptoms that we won’t get into; Just trust us when we say, it sucks.
GSP posted a message to his fans through his Facebook page, giving an update on his status.
“I now understand the health issues that I had during my last training camp. I hoped my condition would improve after the fight but unfortunately, it got worse. I had to go straight to the hospital for a colonoscopy when I came back from vacation last Wednesday. The diagnosis is ulcerative colitis and I am now taking medication that will hopefully appease the symptoms. My health is my #1 priority right now, I’m still a very happy man, thanks for your support!!!”
We wish a speedy recovery to one of the GOAT’s of our sport.
