Drew McFedries

Does anyone know when he will be back? I knew he had a staph infection but I wasn't sure when he would return? If anyone has any information that'd be nice.

When the staph infection was announced last month they said 8 mos. It sounded terrible "Had to have part of his leg removed"...suprised there hasn't been more updates coz his leg is kinda important for the ass whipping he lays on people

Report: Staph infection sidelines UFCs Drew McFedries for six to eight months

Rising middleweight talent Drew McFedries will be out for six to eight months because of a severe staph infection on the back of his leg that required recent surgery, according to MMAonTap.com.

Here’s the snip:

“McFedries got hit the worst, suffering from an infection which grew to the size of a football on the back of his leg. The infection required surgery and McFedries had a good amount of skin removed from the back his leg which will now require graphs.”


Last week we passed along news that two other UFC fighters from the Miletich camp in addition to McFedries were infected with the skin-eating bacteria — former heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia and lightweight Spencer Fisher. In fact, Fisher had to withdraw from his main event fight with Din Thomas at UFC Fight Night 11 on September 19.

Based on this report, the earliest McFedries can return to action would be early in 2008. That’s a tough blow for the 185-pound prospect who was looking to ride the momentum of a devastating first round knockout of Jordan Radev at UFC Fight Night 10 back in June.

He has two other appearances inside the Octagon — a technical knockout win over Alessio Sakara and a submission loss to Martin Kampmann.

McFedries was penciled in to appear at UFC 77 on October 20 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Clearly, he will not be ready in time for that event.

Naturally, we’ll keep you posted on the recovery of McFedries and any match ups that emerge for him in the relatively distant future.

This is what I have heard....as Halebop said.
