There was a scary scene inside of the octagon during the preliminary card of UFC 166, when Adlan Amagov was able to score a devastating knockout win over TJ Waldburger that included some heavy blows well after Waldburger was already unconscious.
Waldburger was taken out of the cage on a stretcher and directly to a local hospital, but he has been cleared from the hospital and everything is looking good.
From UFC president Dana White:
Update on TJ Waldburger: all of his tests came back negative and he’s been released and on his way to go have dinner
— Dana White (@danawhite) October 20, 2013
It is great to hear the good news about Waldburger’s status, because the knockout looked terrifying and appeared that it could have been something serious.
Waldburger will still likely miss a few months for being so viciously knocked out, but at least he was able to avoid any serious injury and will be able to fight again. Hopefully he has a good dinner, he deserves it.
