(Get well soon, buddy.)
According to Dana White’s Twitter page, the Phillipe Nover-Sam Stout bout scheduled for tonight’s Spike TV UFC Fight Night event has been called off after Nover suffered a seizure backstage. Nover is said to be doing fine now, and White stressed that Stout was "very cool" about the whole thing, but it’s still a hell of a blow to a couple of young fighters who no doubt worked hard to prepare for this night. Nover was coming into this fight looking for his first official UFC win after a promising run on "The Ultimate Fighter," while Stout was trying to win two in a row for the first time in his UFC career.
You hate to see a bout called off for reasons like this, but at least Nover’s doing okay. Hopefully this is nothing serious and these two will get a chance to go at it later on down the road. Feel better, Phillipe.
