    Well. This doesn't change my respect for Machida's fighting abilities. In fact, it doesn't really change anything. After all, I like Luke Cummo even if he is a total weirdo.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    LOL! Just think of it as warm beer or Tequila. Arghkkk! j/k

    Anyhow, just so you guys know, urine therapy have been around a long time, all over the world... okay, maybe not all over, but in a lot of places around the world. Umm, same difference. Damnit. Anyway, for the most cases, it is used as an external treatment, such as cuts or washes (YUCK!). Now, being that I've lived in a third world country before coming to the U.S AND English is my 3rd language, I've seen such practices many times, tho I still think it's.... just.... weird. Often time, it deals with being deep in the jungle and getting a good cut, with no band aid around and not the right plant medicine in nearest reach, urine is what many people have been using, and while many claims its success, I still remain skeptical about it, even if I've seen it work before (humm sounds like the foom foom myth now).
    As for drinking it, I also know some who have done that. The belief is that, it's suppose to be a "powerful&natural" medicine/elixir of some sort or whatever the hell. And yes, it's preferably collected in the morning. Personally, I've never done it. No idea if I ever will, but if scientifically proven to enhance my fighting skills, **** I'd give it a world. As long as things don't go as far as the whole "2girl,1cup" deal. Now THAT is ****.

    Interesting, I don't think there's anything too weird about it. If Lyoto does it, drink up people!

    Urine therapy is bollocks.

    However, it has antibacterial properties, and hence pouring it on a wound isn't a totally stupid thing to do, and used to be quite common as a wartime treatment of last resort.

    I think I'll wait until other people drinking their own piss start dominating the UFC. Until then, I'll call this a case of stone soup; Machida could propably replace a glass of piss in the morning with five minutes of chi-sao after training for the same effects.

    So i guess it depends on what the hangover is from.
    I once took a large, unidentified pill outside a club in Manhattan, fell asleep for 18 hours, then woke up and did a frothy green piss that lasted for over ten minutes. If only I had drunk it *sigh*
