During the preliminary bout at UFC 166 between TJ Waldburger and Adlan Amagov, the Russian was able to land some vicious shots that knocked Waldburger unconscious but that wasn’t all. Amagov went on to land two hard shots after Waldbuger was already unconscious and it was a scary scene.
Waldburger remained flat on his back for a few minutes without moving before the medical team came in to the octagon.
The medical staff took a stretcher into the octagon and a cervical collar for Waldburger, who they eventually placed on the stretcher and took out of the arena. The good news is that there was no need for the collar, but it was still a very frightening scene.
