UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt suffered a fractured right toe during a loss to Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 last month, but a separate injury has been causing him more problems. A broken toe sounds painful, but Hunt has also been dealing with an infected hematoma in his left leg that has required multiple surgeries.
Hunt shared the photo you see above on Twitter over the weekend, which shows how red his left leg had become as a result of the infection. He said at the time that he had just finished surgery and needed “a couple more” surgeries to clean everything up. He later recorded a video that shows the horrible infection up close. If you have a weak stomach, I would not watch this:
Had that gone untreated, Hunt’s life would have certain been in danger. He even said in the video that the wound looks “cleaner” now, so I can’t imagine what it was like before surgery. As MMA Weekly pointed out, Hunt was in the discussion for a heavyweight title shot before dos Santos knocked him out.Google+
