MMA Fighter Joel Bauman Blames Loss On Herpes Outbreak

MMA light heavyweight Joel Bauman won his match at Fury FC 61 against Reese Forest. While celebrating his victory with an interview, he opened up about a fight that didn’t go his way earlier this year.

Joel looked back on how far he’s come after taking the W last night but he made a jaw-dropping revelation in the process; blaming a recent loss on herpes and NFTs!

“Last fight I was tired, I was exhausted,” he told the reporter.

Joel said an NFT project he has been working on was to blame for the exhaustion and claimed he pulled 30 all-nighters before his fight against Josh Fremd, which he lost at the time.

That’s when he hit everyone with the shocking but very honest revelation, “I had herpes before that fight, two outbreaks in the span of a week,” Joel said. “I’m here, I’m healthy, let’s go, whatever. It doesn’t matter. I fight,” he said while keeping it real.

Adopted by white parents as a baby, Bauman grew up as one of the few African-Americans in tiny Kerkhoven, Minn., population 759, about 100 miles west of the Twin Cities.

Through Internet sites and message boards, Bauman interacted with fledgling rappers and it explains why he’s a part time rapper.
