Anthony Pettis Sent To Hospital With Staph Infection

Anthony Pettis, who has been rehabbing from shoulder surgery for several months, was forced to the hospital Monday night with a Staph infection, according to Inside MMA.

Pettis, a former WEC champion, had surgery following a win over Joe Lauzon. The infection is not expected to cause any serious side effects.

“Showtime” is scheduled to meet Donald Cerrone in a key lightweight tilt early in 2013 that could help create a new No. 1 contender in the division.
