We like to take a somewhat “different look” at the MMA universe, but occasionally we also have to report some tragic news. It’s being reported that Shawn Bias – the Palace Fighting Championship’s featherweight champ until last Thursday – is only being given a 30-percent chance of survival. He is currently in a coma at Oroville General Hospital, which is north of Sacramento, California.
Sherdog dug up the story:
The 22-year-old fighter suffered an apparent heart attack late Saturday night – just two days after losing his PFC title to Art Arciniega – and later lapsed into a coma around 1 a.m. Sunday morning. After being admitted to the hospital, Bias was also diagnosed with complete kidney failure and has since been placed on dialysis.
The information was supplied by George Adkins who is a training partner and good friend of Shawn. Adkins noted that Shawn didn’t receive any more than the normal damage in the Thursday night fight that went down in Lemoore, California. It was also revealed that Bias was diagnosed with strep throat last Monday, but had insisted on fighting. This was in addition to having pneumonia and an infected tooth. It’s unbelievable the guy could even walk to the cage.Read More ADD COMMENTS (0) DIGG THIS
