Hooker, who’s been in the hospital treating a knee infection that required surgery, gave us a slightly graphic update on his situation. In the video, you can see the dressing being removed to reveal the expected: a recently surgically repaired knee.
The UFC lightweight even gave it a nice little closeup, to make sure. In his defense, he did warn us it was not for the fainthearted – though the sight is not quite as disgusting as Herman’s injury.
“They removed the dressing to make sure the infection was gone, and I don’t require another operation,” Hooker wrote on his 20four.com.au page. “I’m on antibiotics via a drip line, the doctors are saying maybe another couple days in hospital.”

And a happy Hooker (via Instagram)
Hey Team just a quick update: Last night I had an operation to remove an infection in my leg. I'm recovering in hospital for a couple of days now. Thanks for all the support I will be back in action ASAP. PS I don't remember posting the last pic, morphine knocked me for six ??????!!!

A few weeks ago, “The Hangman” shared a video showing the badly swollen knee, which looked a few times the size of its counterpart after a “tough wrestling session” the night before.
It’s quite curious that Hooker (14-7 MMA, 4-3 UFC) is coming off a knockout win over Ross Pearson (19-14 MMA, 11-11 UFC) via – you guessed it, a knee. The knee-of-doom that earned Hooker a $50,000 fight-night bonus at UFC Fight Night 110, however, was the right one (via Twitter):
We at the Blue Corner wish Hooker a speedy recovery.view original article >>
