Mark Hunt in Hospital for Surgery on Infected Left Leg; Two More Operations To Go

June 10, 2013 10:15 am by Chris Taylor

During the weekend, UFC heavyweight contender Mark Hunt (9-8 MMA, 4-2 UFC) revealed that he was in the hospital to have surgery on his left leg.

Hunt fractured his right toe in his UFC 160 bout with Junior dos Santos, but wasn’t in the hospital for that injury. His current surgery was to alleviate an infected hematoma in his left leg.

Like the fractured toe, the hematoma was also a result of his UFC 160 fight with dos Santos.

Hunt took to twitter to address his fans:

@markhunt1974: Right leg is fractured big toe lol and left left is infected bruise lol I’m a walking infection

@markhunt1974: Well troops jus so u guys know I’m in hospital again jus finished surgery and need a couple more surgeries

Hunt recentley saw his 4-fight UFC win streak end at the hands of former heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos. Mark will get some forced time off to recover before he figures out what’s next for his UFC career.
