    That can put rest to the "Maia vs Gunnar in Dublin" requests. It sucks that Maia is having these problems when he has proven to still be elite despite his age.

    That sucks. Hope he recovers soon.

    Depending on how bad it is, this shouldn't sideline him for more than a few months.

    He had a horrible case of it last year. If I remember correctly it escalated to a bone infection in his clavicle and Maia said he was hooked up to an IV for antibiotics for 6 weeks and was legitimately worried about his life.


    I looked it up, I was right.

    Let's hope this case of staph infection isn't has bad as last years.

    Damn, that's terrible. Hopefully it responds well to treatment and isn't a resistant strain.

    Meh. He just needs to talk to UFC Dr. Jeff Davidson. He cleared Matt Hamill to fight with an open, active staff infection

    in b4 'He clearly told Matt to pull out but he didnt listen' jokes

    Seriously, what kind of idiot would clear a guy with an advanced case of staph? He'd probably clear a guy with a facehugger wrapped around his face.

    You could see it on him, in the Magny fight, im surprised he got cleared considering those things spread.
