“Mutant” Staph Infection Forces Cummins Off UFC 217

Patrick Cummins announced on his social media Tuesday that he was forced out of a light heavyweight clash with Corey Anderson on the November 4th card at Madison Square Garden due to a staph infection on his right foot.

See below for the photo and comments from Cummins which may be unsafe for those working.








While Corey Anderson has had staph infection before, he called out Cummins for pulling out.

Cummins was looking for his third straight victory after defeating Gian Villante and Jan Blachowicz earlier this year.

Anderson who won the 19th season of The Ultimate Fighter, last fought in March 2017, losing a main event bout with Jimi Manuwa.

UFC 217 will feature three title fights on Nov. 4. Headlined by middleweight champion Michael Bisping versus former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre, the pay-per-view card also includes bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt and strawweight queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk against T.J. Dillashaw and Rose Namajunas, respectively.
