Spencer Fisher apparently isn’t the only Miletich Fighting Systems fighter struck by a staph infection.
Teammates Drew McFedries and Tim Sylvia have also been infected, and McFedries still remains hospitalized, according to The Fight Network’s Brian Knapp.
According to the report:
According to Fisher, at least two other MFS fighters — heavy-handed middleweight Drew McFedries and former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia — have also been infected. McFedries remains in the hospital and has had a [sizable] piece of his leg removed, according to Fisher. His rumored October bout with Marvin Eastman at UFC 77 also appears in jeopardy.
All three fighters train at MFS in Bettendorf, Iowa.
