Sage Northcutt just picked up a W over MRSA, a potentially life-threatening infection that has sidelined his career for nearly a month.

According to the CDC, "Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacteria that is resistant to many antibiotics... most MRSA infections are skin infections. In medical facilities, MRSA [can cause] life-threatening bloodstream infections, pneumonia and surgical site infections."

Luckily, Sage has beaten the disease, and was released from the hospital earlier today.

Sage was diagnosed with MRSA a few weeks ago, although other symptoms nearly took him out of his last fight with Bryan Barberena back in January.

His next match-up will take place at UFC 200 on July 9. Sage will face 8-3 Enrique "Wasabi" Marin.
