IFWT_Mark Hunt  2

Ewwwwwwww! I don’t know how this guy is so cool about showing off a staph infection! Over the weekend UFC fighter Mark Hunt revealed he was in the hospital and underwent surgery for an infected hematoma in his left leg. He shared a video of the wound. Just a warning, it’s pretty graphic/gross if you have a weak stomach.
More details & video after the jump…

Hunt fought in May where he lost by knockout to former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos. The fight came just days after Hunt was able to get to the United States after having his travel visa delayed by weeks because of a past run in with law enforcement while in America.

Now back at home in New Zealand, Hunt is dealing with a whole new ailment that put him under the doctor’s scalpel, and he is taking several rounds of antibiotics to deal with an infection on his leg that developed after the fight.

Hunt first released the news via his Twitter account stating that he was in the hospital for surgery and still had more operations to go until he was finished.

In a reply to a fan, Hunt revealed that he had an infected hematoma on his leg in addition to a broken toe and joked that he was “a walking infection”.

Hunt then had a friend film a video of him in the hospital, revealing the nasty nature of the staph infection which literally ate through the skin and muscle in his leg.  Be forewarned the video of Hunt’s leg is not for the faint of heart.
