UFC president Dana White has just Tweeted that lightweight Phillipe Nover has suffered a seizure in the locker room and will not be able to meet his “UFC Fight Night 19” opponent, Sam Stout, tonight.
“The nover stout fight is off. Nover had a seizure in the locker room. He is ok,” White Tweeted at 1:12PM PT. “Stout was very cool during the incident and is a class act!!”
There is no word on what caused Nover to go down, however we will keep you posted.
On a side note, Nover also fainted on the first day of filming the eighth season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” After the incident, White humorously nicknamed Nover, “Fainting Phillipe,” however quickly changed his tune after seeing what the former registered nurse was capable of doing in the Octagon.
“UFC Fight Night 19” will be jumping off shortly inside the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. You can catch the first televised bout airing on Spike TV at 8PM ET/PT.
