Anthony Pettis UFC 136It’s been a rough few months for former WEC champion Anthony Pettis, and his latest illness has landed him in the hospital.

Pettis was admitted for care at a Milwaukee area hospital on Monday after a staph infection was discovered in his elbow.

Pettis’ manager Mike Roberts confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com on Monday. Inside MMA first reported the information.

According to Roberts, Pettis was admitted after the discovery of the staph infection was made, and he immediately went in for treatment. Pettis’ manager did say however they don’t expect the infection to be anything serious, but he was admitted as a precaution.

Staph infections can be extremely dangerous if left untreated, and have plagued the MMA industry for many years.

New Bellator light heavyweight Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal is still recovering from his battle with a staph infection in his knee, that required multiple surgeries and treatments in the hospital. Only now several months later is Lawal back on his feet and in training, but he battled the deadly infection for some time before being able to rehabilitate his knee.

Pettis’ infection is not believed to be nearly as bad, but he will be treated in the hospital for the infection as they look to clear it up so he can return home, and return to training.

Pettis is expected to face Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in his next fight, most likely in late January.
