The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is now short a co-main event, as Uriah Hall has been transported to the hospital. In a new update, the fighter is now conscious and remains in the hospital following his weigh-in scare.
UFC Fight Night 124 is set to take place Sunday night, Jan. 14, inside the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The night’s co-main event was initially set to see Uriah Hall go toe-to-toe with MMA legend Vitor Belfort. But, Hall failed to appear at the official weigh-ins for the event. As a result, the fight was pulled from the card.
It was later reported that Hall was transported to the hospital shortly after failing to show to the weigh-ins, but the fighter’s condition was unknown. Now MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani has taken to Twitter to report that Hall was allegedly on weight before the weigh-ins.
Hall reportedly fainted before making it to the weigh-ins. Helwani has been told that the incident “looked scary.” Hall is now conscious and being attended to by medical physicians.
