Hunt still plagued by staph infection

 

Following a loss to Junior Dos Santos at UFC 160, Mark Hunt ended up in the hospital fighting a staph infection in an infected hematoma on his leg. Unfortunately for him, Hunt has continued to deal with the infection and not quite out of the woods:

The hard-hitting heavyweight recently announced that he could end up back in the hospital due to a lingering staph infection which he contracted during his UFC 160 loss to Junior Dos Santos.

“Well troops, just wanted [you] guys to know the skin [graft] didn’t survive, and I think I will be back in hospital next week,” Hunt wrote on Facebook. “It’s a bummer, really, because the Hill Song Conference is starting next Tuesday. I hope I don’t have to go [to the] hospital, but we will see. I see [a] plastic surgeon Tuesday. Didn’t realize how bad this is, man. Anyway, troops, [I] will keep [you] guys informed.”

I believe someone asked for the Randleman pic. I'm amazed at anyone recovering from something like this, and really wishing Hunto the best!!...that leg looks terrible.

I'm not a doctor, but I wonder if this is harder for someone of higher weight? Not sure if that has anything to do with it but best of luck getting better Hunt. <3

Damn! Hopefully Mark kicks this infection's ass and gets back into the cage ASAP. One of the most exciting fighters out there.
