Being away from the gym is unfortunate for UFC heavy hitter Mark Hunt, who suffered a serious staph infection on his left leg after his epic battle with former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC 160. That fight happened over a month ago and the infection, which looks to be about the size of a golf ball, is still lingering. However, things are looking better for Hunt: The latest photo he tweeted shows a leg that’s far less grisly than we saw in the previous picture).

Although, he still needs to recover for an undetermined period, Hunt was hoping to avoid the hospital and still must meet with a plastic surgeon tomorrow.

“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.”

We’ll make sure to keep you up to date on his progress. Stay tuned for more on Yell! Magazine.
