Recently Patrick Cummins reported that he’s no longer going to fight at UFC 217, due to a staph infection, but Corey Anderson isn’t having it.
On Tuesday, Cummins announced via social media that because a “mutant” staph infection he’s battling, isn’t responding to antibiotics, he’s not going to fight Anderson on November 4th as scheduled. Since then, however, Anderson has posted the following response:
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 will be hosted by Madison Square Garden in New York City.
