Alexander Volkanovski in stable condition after infection, remains in hospital

Alexander Volkanovski appears to have dodged a serious health scare, but he’s not completely out of the woods just yet.

In what should be a time of celebration for Volkanovski following his signature win over Jose Aldo at UFC 237 this past week, the featherweight contender remains hospitalized in Chile after an unforeseen blood infection.

Volkanovski was on his way back home to Australia from Rio de Janeiro, where he beat former champion Aldo via unanimous decision, when he had to be hospitalized due to a blood infection that “developed quickly.”

Although “The Great” is still receiving care, his manager, Rhys Dal Cin, provided a promising update on social media (via Twitter):

@alexvolkanovski condition is stable, he is responding well to the treatment.

As a precaution, he will remain under supervision at the hospital and will be re-assessed in 48hrs to ensure the infection is completely under control before given any clearance to travel home.

With Volkanovski’s stay in the hospital ongoing, the fact that he’s not getting the next title shot at 145 pounds appears to be more reasonable. Despite the Aussie riding a 17-fight winning streak, Frankie Edgar was recently announced as the next challenger for champ Max Holloway at UFC 240 on July 27.
