Dustin Poirier is certainly a top contender in the UFC lightweight division and he has found himself in poor health of late. He is coming off of his UFC 281 win over Michael Chandler.  Poirier has been circling the UFC lightweight division top five for a while now. He put himself in a great position with his last win in New York City but now this infection could derail his momentum.

The Instagram story has since been deleted but he did share a quick update to his Twitter.

“Going on day 2 in the hospital, he wrote “Sh-ts getting serious.”

Staph infection, medically known as staphylococcus is very common among fighters. It is very contagious and requires the treatment of a medical professional and antibiotics. Poirier has described his case as “serious”, and it could affect his training and push a possible return back weeks or even months.

We send wishes for him to make a speedy recovery and hope he makes a comeback soon.
