Corey Anderson would like Patrick Cummins to reconsider his decision.

Cummins (10-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) today announced on Instagram that he will no longer fight Anderson (9-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) at next month’s UFC 217 because of a “mutant staph infection.”

That decision, according to Anderson, is being made too soon and can be reversed if Cummins takes the proper measures.

Via Instagram:

How do YOU call it quits so far out from fight night? There’s still 3 weeks til fight night… And I’ve had staph before.. cut that shit open, drain it, take your meds, take a couple rest days to elevate the leg, and you’ll be good by Saturday. You called me out in 2014 and I’ve been waiting for our time to come every since… There’s still plenty of time til the dance. I got my best outfit, my familys tickets, and my friends are all looking forward to it. I hope to see you on the floor… #thisisbusiness #andpersonal #UFC217

UFC 217 takes place Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. Cummins vs. Anderson was slated for the UFC Fight Pass prelims.

No official announcement regarding Cummins’ removal has been made by the UFC.

Anderson is looking to rebound from a first-round knockout loss to Jimi Manuwa earlier this year at UFC Fight Night 107. Cummins, a 36-year-old who took up MMA in 2010 after he was a two-time NCAA Division I All-American wrestler, is riding a two-fight winning streak.

The latest UFC 217 lineup now includes:

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)

  • Champ Michael Bisping vs. Georges St-Pierre – for middleweight title
  • Champ Cody Garbrandt vs. T.J. Dillashaw – for bantamweight title
