Uriah Hall bryter tystnaden kring UFC Fight Night 124 – drabbades av hjärtattack

Det var meningen att Uriah Hall skulle möta Vitor Belfort under kvällens andra huvudmatch i den 124:e upplagan av UFC Fight Night. Nu bryter Uriah Hall tystnaden kring varför hans frånvaro lyste under galan.

På vägen till invägningarna inför UFC Fight Night 124, där han skulle möta Vitor Belfort, ska Uriah Hall ha kollapsat. Han var oförmögen kliva upp på vågen, och matchen ströks från matchkortet.

Hall transporterades till närmaste sjukhus, där han tvingades vara kvar under 48 timmar. Han har i en Q&A på Instagram Live berättat att han mår bra och redan återhämtat sig väl. Enligt rapporter ska Paige VanZant bevittnat kollapsen och kallat det för det värsta jag någonsin sett.

Många frågetecken har blossat upp efter Halls frånvaro på galan men nu har Hall adresserat vad som egentligen hände på sociala medier:


There’s a lot of miscommunication of what’s going on.  People think I punked out. I definitely want to apologize to Vitor and his camp. I know it sucks to go through all that and then not fight. I’ve been there, but for the record, I did make weight. I just failed to make it to the scale, which sucked.

I’ve never had a problem cutting weight. What happened was I ignored some issues that happened prior. As a fighter, we don’t have sick days. I know some of you have sick days. I don’t have a sick day. So for me, it was just to show up, and I showed up, but my body just was not showing up with it.

Enligt Uriah Hall, som var finalist under säsong 17 av ”The Ultimate Fighter”, grundar sig problemet i en skada från tidigare. Utan att nämna några detaljer kring skadan, berätar han att viktnedgången var svårare än han förväntat sig:

I don’t have to really get into details. It was a harder cut than normal because the injuries I had didn’t allow me to really cut the weight properly. I neglected my safety and my health, which was the dumbest thing to do, I will never do that again, your health is important.

It was an injury that I ignored and it just caught up to me.  My body was just not responsive to it. I definitely wanted to clear the air. I’m getting better, following doctor’s orders, getting checked up.

Vad Hall diagnostiserats med är ännu oklart, men Hall beskriver något ganska allvarligt:


I was in the hospital, of course, and it was probably the most dramatic experience I’ve ever had. I mean, I was in and out of it. I was conscious, but I was unconscious. I knew what was happening, but I was fighting over it. I was punching. I think I had a mini-seizure and at the same time a slight heart attack. My kidneys were just not good.

I was so ready to freaking throw down, but you know what? Shit happens. The doctor even said, even if I made weight, I probably would’ve died the next day because my body wasn’t having it. Like I said, I’m never going to ignore my health again. I did it for the fans, I did it to get paid, I did it to make sure I showed up, but at the end of the day, man, your life is not worth it.

Hall nämnde inget kring när han förväntar sig vara tillbaka i träning. Han säger sig cok fortfarande vilja möta Vitor Belfort:

I’d love to fight Vitor again if he gets his panties out of a bunch. I heard he’s complaining. Dude, it’s a fight man. Shit happens. Obviously we can scrap again. Obviously I have to get better, but I would love to fight him. I definitely want to give him a proper retirement fight.
