by Ray Hui | source:

A staph infection is the reason why UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock was forced to pull out of Friday's fight at World Extreme Fighting 46 in Orlando.

Shamrock's wife Tonya tells that Shamrock came down with MRSA recently while taking care of his son who had been hospitalized for a week due to the same infection. For the safety of himself and others, the 47-year-old Shamrock was asked by doctors to withdraw from the fight and was placed on antibiotics for several weeks.

So if a fighter can't be top 20 in their division then they should just retire? What about the people out there who just love to fight?
