As fight fans know, I used to be a professional Mixed Martial Artist. After seven years of not competing professionally, they asked me if I wanted to fight for a lot of money. Sure, why not? I wanted to have a pool in my yard, so I took the fight. I had no injuries, so I thought everything would be okay.
For about six weeks I was good, then every single injury that stopped my career in the first place—all of them and then some — came back with a vengeance. To deal with the pain, I started taking Norco, just one before a workout. The day of the fight I took one in the morning. I didn’t want to have my head in a cloud when I was fighting that day, so I took it at like 10am.
