Erik Perez Sidelined With Staph Infection, Remains In The Hospital

When news of Erik Perez’s exit from this Saturday’s UFC 159 card broke, most just believed he suffered a late training injury.

However, thanks to the Jackson’s MMA Twitter page, we now know that the rising bantamweight prospect is still in the hospital.

Perez recently signed a six-fight extension with the UFC, and hopefully the 23-year-old can make a quick recover and get back to action.

Bedford will remain on the card, taking on Bryan Caraway.
