Miletich Fighting Systems’ Drew McFedries will be out of action for six to eight months following a nasty staph infection that’s wreaked havoc on one of his legs.

MMA on Tap provided the update this morning.

Last week, McFedries — and other MFS fighters Spencer Fisher and Tim Sylvia — were all hit with the infections while at their training center in Bettendorf, Iowa.

Wow. First Fisher and now McFedries. I hope they lock it down and prevent any more infections. There's a ton of UFC and IFL guys in that gym.

Gosh... That makes you think about the hygiene in ur camp...
How often if ever do they actually clean the mats with antibacterial and antimycotic stuff...

I am more upset about spencer fisher not fighting din thomas... i was really looking forward to seeing spencer's stand up game again (it looked great and so fast against stout- standup fight of the year without a doubt)

But for sure we are missing out not seeing drew fight eastman. His ko power is incredible.

Sylvia i am not going to miss too much, not a big fan of his (although i heard rumors of him wanting to fight Werdum which would of been cool to see).

*I dont know anything about staph infections. Why do they grow on unclean mats? How are they so life threatning and contagious? Just some questions to learn more about staph...

I love McFedries... that sucks!
But his match with Eastman was going to be a blow out anyway.... Eastman could get KOed in a pillow fight

I'm sorry but Mcfedries would get picked apart by Silva.
