Okay, now I think we know why "Mayhem" Miller felt the need to take to Twitter and badger Jake Shields about the result of their Strikeforce title fight. Miller claims to have gotten a staph infection as a result of the bout, and this photo he posted just a few minutes ago confirms that he's either telling the truth, or an alien is about to jump out of his throat. The next time you hear Dana White asking a group of starry-eyed young men whether they want to be [expletive] fighters, think about this. It's not all girls and money and fame. It's also weird infections that make you look like you're growing a third eye in the middle of your neck.

Nothing unusual from Mayhem. What's up with all of the staph infections lately?

At least he doesn't have a Randleman staph infection.

JESUS take a look at the randleman pic and imagine that on Miller's throat..... I see trouble lol but im sure these guys have the best medical care.
i should damn well hope so, even with all the smack talk about fighters not being supported medically, they have their own cash and summin like that REALLY needs to be sorted out

Yeah that makes my skin crawl every time I see it. God, staph is a gross illness. I had it once, but it wasn't in my bloodstream so I didn't get any of those sickening lesions. My ear was clogged up, causing bad movement sickness and almost a ruptured eardrum, I was so thankful it didn't get into my blood, omfg I would be terrified if I woke up with holes like that in my body.

AAAAAGH, it's so sick.

I could be wrong, but I think those holes were from the infection being cut out.

I think this is correct. If the abcesses are shallow they can be lanced and drained. If they are deep the most likely need to be surgically removed in order to heal.

Staph is not a flesh eating bacteria, it is found on the surface of everyone's skin.

I posted an article on it a while back. I recommend reading it if you want to learn more about Staph and how dangerous it can be.

yeah you're right, but it does still create some really sickening lesions full of pus and dead skin. Man it makes my skin crawl. I feel itchy when I see that ****. I really need to not look at this thread anymore.
