Just in time to watch UFC 91 “Couture vs. Lesnar”, injured fighter Amir Sadollah is released from the hospital after being treated for a leg infection. Sadollah was to take on Nick Catone on Saturdays PPV, but the fight was scratched after he was admitted to the hospital Sunday. Here’s what he had to say on his official blog.

To all my fans,
I really appreciate all the support you have sent my way and I am so sorry I am not able to fight this weekend. I trained harder for this than any other fight in my life and I was looking forward to this more than you know.

It started on friday with a small mark on my leg. I immediately went to the doctor and he gave me medication and told me if it got worse to go to the hospital. Well, it got worse and on Sunday I went in and have been here ever since. I am hoping they will discharge me by Thursday.

I am very sorry if I disappointed anyone. A lot of work by a lot of people went into this. For it to end with something totally out of my control makes it difficult to swallow. I will be back in the gym as soon as possible and will be ready to fight as soon as Joe Silva can get me back in. [Source]

    Bleach works wonders…the good old days…mopping the wrestling mats with 90 bleach to 10 water and hell we still had guys with ringworm…but who knows maybe this was an allergic reaction to something or a bruise that got infected..

    That stuff is nasty I got it once went to the hospital for 4 days in isolation. I've had it 3 other times and it's no fun. painful stuff. I was getting from my dog who got it from a farm house I lived on. we're both clear now but no one should think anything bad of this fighter. he probaly could have fought but would have put himself and others at risk. a true professional.
