Mark Hunt claims skin graph failed, may have to return to hospital for more surgery

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

UFC Heavyweight Mark Hunt just got out of the hospital following multiple surgeries and may have to return because of a failed skin graph placed over a wound from a staph infection.

Mark Hunt lost by TKO in a classic to Junior dos Santos at UFC 160 but his troubles were just beginning. Following the fight he endured multiple surgeries for an injured knee and an infected hematoma. Now it looks like he'll be going back to the hospital. From Hunt's Facebook:
