Krause gets staph on TUF, 3 surgeries, 25 stitches

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The latest episode of The Ultimate Fighter, features 14 welterweights who previously appeared on the series. One, James Krause, was even an active UFC fighter.

Shortly after filming wrapped, a cut on Krause’s leg that he got during the show developed what he accurately termed a “nasty infection.” Like any normal person, he documented the ten days in the hospital, three surgeries, and 25 stitches on his social network.

“Hoping to be recovered in a day or two,” it begins.

Well… this definitely isn't how I planned my days after being away for 6 weeks. I got a nasty infection on a cut in my leg from when I was on the show and have felt terrible ever since. Hoping to be recovered in a day or two!
