    Are you serious? Tell me you're making a bad joke.



    He said 'Burn Hepatitis and send her to hell', the 'her' referring to the Hepatitis. Most languages assign genders to their nouns, I'm assuming 'hepatitis' is feminine in Portugese, and even if it isn't, people who speak a language in which there are marked genders tend to use 'he' or 'she' rather than 'it'.



    Also: Hepatitis A isn't even an STD.

    its "cool" that he is being straight up with the fans and that he isnt letting it affect his position on the fight. Also he is being pretty positive about it so that is why we use "cool"
