Just seen this on InsideMMA's Facebook.. came here to get updates but didn't see a thread. If there is one, I swear I searched.

 

 

 
BREAKING NEWS - Anthony Pettis hospitalized with an infection in his elbow in the same arm as his surgically repaired shoulder. Doctors don't feel it is related to the surgery.

Hence why he is not on the show, we apologize for the inconvenience.

I hope it's not staph infection from the surgery. Pretty common these days with surgeries in hospitals. There have been stories of people getting heart surgery and staph getting in there and eating its way out from the inside. Hospitals are more prepared now and people aren't dying as much, but that's a legitimate concern.

I'm just speculating and making a guess, and I really hope I'm wrong.  I'm no doctor and the infection is at his elbow and not the shoulder (I'm not sure how they did the surgery or even what they did), so I could be thinking like an idiot as usual.

Regardless, best of luck to him in recovering, not just for the awesome fight but his health as well.

Looks like I was on the right track at least, check the main page for the article:

http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news/429037/Anthony-Pettis-admitted-to-hospital-with-staph-infection/

It says that it was discovered "in" his elbow, and not "on" his elbow.  I'm wondering if he just picked it up rolling around on the mat, or if its actually a result of his shoulder work he had done awhile back.  I think its from the latter of the two, but once again that would just be spectulation at this point.

Either way, I hope he recovers real soon.  War Pettis.

Tommy

Sounds like they caught the infection fairly quickly, which is good news for Pettis. His fight with Cerrone is in January. Worse case scenario, if he's unable to fight by then, I could see Maynard or Lauzon getting promoted. to fight Cerrone
