Anthony Pettis Readmitted to Hospital Due to Staph Infection In His Elbow

UFC lightweight contender, Anthony Pettis has contracted a staph infection in his elbow and has been readmitted to hospital in Milwaukee for treatment, something that will delay his return to the octagon.

“Showtime” recently went under the knife to repair his shoulder, and now will be re-admitted in Milwaukee on Monday after Staph infection was discovered in his elbow. The good news… The former WEC champion is not expected to face any serious side effects.

Pettis bounced back big time from an octagon debut defeat to Clay Guilda when he picked up back-to-back wins over Jeremy Stephens and most recently a first round head-kick knockout of Joe Lauzon.
