Gareth A Davies talks about the back-story on Alessio Sakara pulling out of UFC 122 on MMA Live
"Well you can't make full accusations about this Jon. But I have it on good authority that 8 or 9 days before bout was due to take place; Alessio Sakara was walking around at 220 pounds."
"He failed to show for the fighter workouts on the Thursday in Italy. He was walking around the fight hotel looking very gaunt and ghostlike."
"When you take that much weigh off, that quickly, it does bring on illness sometimes and I do fear this may have happened here with Alessio Sakara."
"And it doesn't do him any favors with the UFC, I can guarantee you that."
