How often do you hear them say about fighters, "He had a 102 degree temperature yesterday but he's here today. Wow, what a warrior."

I notice them say that all the time. Can anyone say, "overtraining?"

Now, I read in an article from Sherdog, "When you add in the fact that, according to people close to Ortiz, he was hospitalized for dehydration just over a week before the fight while fighting off an illness, it just makes you appreciate, even more, the dedication he has always shown to the sport."

I don't know for sure if Ortiz was overtrained, but it's a darn good candidate.

So, my question is one of volume. How do you balance sparring, drilling, S&C, ect. so as to not overtrain?
