Phillipe Nover Suffers Seizure, Fight Night Bout Cancelled (UPDATED)

UFC President Dana White informed fans today that the scheduled bout between Sam Stout and TUF 8 alumnus Phillipe Nover, scheduled for this evening’s Fight Night event, has been cancelled.

The decision to keep Nover out of action was made in response to a seizure the nurse-turned-fighter suffered in the locker room while preparing for his clash with the hard-hitting Canadian.

While details are still emerging, White went on Twitter to let concerned fans know that Nover is “okay” and Stout was a “class act” throughout the incident. The UFC President has since given an update on the situation saying, “Nover is sitting ringside and 100 percent healthy.”
