    I'm glad it seems like everyone involved is reasonable and doesn't blame MMA for the accident. Unfortunately there will be some idiots who aren't as smart.

    Yup was posted a while back, earlier I was going to go find the thread but then decided that was way too much effort.

    Wow, that sucks, especially not having any medical insurance and all.

    I can relate with that since I too do not have medical insurance and had to use the ER the other day, just got the bill yesterday and it was $1100 for the doctor to clean my cut and stitch me up. Fucking rip off.

    I can't even imagine what this is going to cost him.

    Was this from a sprawl? I've heard that a good sprawl can knock a guy out, but I never knew this could happen :(

    I have an idea of what it looked like. Just imagine the head folding over backwards to his back.

    I dunno how you would get insurance being an amateur mma fighter. I'd imagine the words "cage fighter" being a giant turnoff to insurance companies.

    Remember watching that vid quite some time ago. Old news. Would be a good thread with updated info on how he's doing.
