Vinny Magalhaes out of Titan FC 28 main event, still in hospital on Antibiotics

Jason da Silva-USA TODAY Sports

UFC veteran Vinny Magalhaes is out of the Titan FC 28 main event according to CEO Jeff Aronson. Magalhaes suffered a staph infection ahead of his anticipated bout at Metamoris 3 and is currently in hospital on antibiotics.

It appears fans will have to wait longer than originally anticipated for Vinny Magalhaes' Titan FC debut, as the talented Brazilian grappler has been sidelined due to a staph infection he suffered last week.

Titan FC CEO Jeff Aronson tweeted the news this morning:

Apart from his scheduled MMA bout against fellow UFC veteran Jason Brilz, the staph infection derailed Vinny's jiu-jitsu match against Keenan Cornelius, which was part of the Metamoris 3 card from last Saturday.

According to MMAFighting.com's Guilherme Cruz, the organization is currently seeking a replacement for Brilz, who has amassed a 3-0 record since leaving the UFC in 2011.

Check out Vinny's timeline of tweets dating back to Saturday:

...and finally:

Titan FC 28 takes place Friday, April 25, 2014 and will feature the debut of former UFC heavyweight Dave Herman, as well as an intriguing match-up between UFC vets Daniel Roberts and Brock Jardine.

*Update: Steph Daniels of Bloody Elbow has spoken to Vinny and learned that he will be hospitalized for at least the next two days.
