TJ Laramie shares NSFW images of MRSA, out of UFC 268

TJ Laramie, UFC 268

TJ Laramie has been forced out of his scheduled bout against Melsik Baghdasaryan at UFC 268. The Canadian prospect has been diagnosed with MRSA.

MRSA’s exact definition is: “Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a group of Gram-positive bacteria that are genetically distinct from other strains of Staphylococcus aureus. MRSA is responsible for several difficult-to-treat infections in humans.”

In short, it is like a staph infection that is much stronger than a normal one and is very hard to treat with antibiotics. TJ Laramie clearly had no choice but to remove himself from the fight at UFC 268.

There is no word yet on if Melsik Baghdasaryan will get a replacement opponent or be removed from the card. TJ Laramie first announced the news, along with images, on his Facebook.

“I’m out of my fight November 6th,” Laramie wrote. “Had an abscess cut out of my inner thigh area on Tuesday and also started developing them on my face. At first, what I thought was an ingrown hair quickly spread and I started feeling some flu-like symptoms and pain in the area, which led me to the Urgent care and then to the ER. Doctors say it is MRSA. After being on the wrong antibiotics at first, I’m now on the correct antibiotics and getting the wound taken care of. Obviously I’m extremely disappointed to not be fighting, especially missing the opportunity to be on what is going to be the card of the year. It’s really terrible timing. Luckily the recovery time shouldn’t be long at all, and I can get right back to work for the next opportunity.”

The pictures of TJ Laramie’s infection can be found below.
