John Kolosci: “I came down with a bronchial infection.”

If you watched last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter, you know that Team Serra fighter, John Kolosci, woke up sick on the morning of his fight and said he was having trouble taking deep breaths. Turns out he had a bronchial infection. From his TUF 6 diary at the Chicago Sun-Times:

The bad news is that I came down with a bronchial infection. I didn’t know that’s what it was until after the fight and I went to the doctor. I was a bit worried about my cardio, as I could not take deep breaths. I was hoping the adrenaline rush that comes with fighting would quell the symptoms for the duration of the fight. It did…

This makes his victory over Billy Miles even more impressive. He thought it was just a chest cold or a flu the morning of the fight, but a bronchial infection? That’s damn serious. John’s proving himself to be one of the real warriors of the season so far.
