Hunt still plagued by staph infection

Thursday, June 27, 2013

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.”
