Thread: UFC Welterweight Demian Maia Sidelined Indefinitely with Bone Infection

  1. Default UFC Welterweight Demian Maia Sidelined Indefinitely with Bone Infection

    UFC welterweight Demian Maia has been diagnosed with a bone infection and is indefinitely sidelined from fighting, according to a report on Wednesday evening.

    The fighter’s manager, Eduardo Alonso, informed UFC Tonight that his client has a condition called Osteomyelitis, which was found in his right clavicle bone and forced the former middleweight title contender into hospitalization for a number of days.

    Maia was scheduled to fight Mike Pyle last Saturday at UFC Fight Night Tulsa, but he had to withdraw from the bout due to a staph infection. Leading into last weekend, the fighter’s conditioned worsened and he was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday, according to the report.

    Upon his release from hospitalization on Friday, Maia was prescribed antibiotics to treat the condition, which he will have to take for six weeks.

    Osteomyelitis is a condition defined as an infection of the bone, according to the Mayo Clinic. The infection can reach the bone by spreading from nearby tissue, or it can begin in the bone if the bone is exposed to germs.

    Didn't read the article, but my buddy got a bone infection from banging some skank he met at a bar. Little penicillin cleared it right up according to him.

    Hope Maia makes a speedy recovery. Staph beats the hell out of you from the inside.

    Wouldn't want any any infection, but a bone infection sounds really bad. Hope for a speedy recovery. A rematch with the donger would be nice.

    If it's an MRSA infection, he'll require 6 weeks of Vancomycin. The big drawback of long term Vancomycin treatment is that it can be toxic to the kidneys. Not a good thing to deal with if you're a fighter who relays on dehydration as part of your weight cutting.
