What should have been a time of celebration for Alexander Volkanovski has turned into a serious medical condition. Although he seems to be out of potent danger, he still isn’t completely on the safer side as of yet.

After racking up the biggest win of his career against Jose Aldo, the featherweight contender is hospitalized in Chile due to a blood infection. Volkanovski was on his way home to Australia from Rio de Janeiro, when he had to be suddenly hospitalized following a blood infection that “developed quickly”.

Despite being under observation of medical staff, Volkanovski’s manager Rhys Dal Cin provided a promising update on social media (via Twitter)

Alexander’s stay in the hospital will only make it harder for him to grab a title shot anytime soon. Anyways, the champ Max Holloway is all set to defend his title against veteran Frankie Edgar at UFC 240 on July 27.
