Mark Hunt, the former K1 champion, is being treated for an infected hematoma that caused a giant hole in his leg. Unfortunately the skin graft he has a few weeks ago didn’t work out and now, Hunt is seeing a plastic surgeon to try to patch the hole in his leg. Hopefully this time the treatment will work for Hunt.
A quote from Mark Hunt’s Facebook page:
Well troops jus wanted u guys to know the skin graph didnt survive,and i think i will be back in hospital next week,its a bummer really cause the hill song confrence is starting next tuesday i hope i dont have to go hospital,but we will see i see plastic surgeon tuesday.didnt realise how bad this is man.anyways troops will keep u guys informed roger roger over and out lol.
The “Super Samoan” was working his way towards a title shot which was promptly ended by Junior Dos Santos. Before losing to Dos Santos, Hunt was on a 4-fight win streak, all Knock-Out victories over Stefan Struve, Cheick Kongo and Chris Tuchscherer.
All we know now is he is seeing a plastic surgeon for treatment, we do not know when he will return to the octagon.
