Brain hemorrhage forces Foster off UFC 129, weeks after loss of testicle

by Steven Marrocco | source:

H.I.T. Squad fighter Brian Foster announced via twitter that he has been forced to withdraw from a fight with Sean Pierson at UFC 129, because an MRI revealed a brain hemorrhage. The MRI was mandated by the Ontario Athletic Commission

Coach Marc Fiore told that while his fighter is OK, he is required to undergo another MRI in six weeks to assure no permanent damage is present. Fiore believes Foster's hemorrhage may have occurred during a hard sparring session two days before the MRI was taken.

"A blood vessel broke open, started bleeding, and turned into a brain hemorrhage. Our doctor and the UFC doctor said they won't clear him to fight.

"It should heal on its own, and if it's good, he's cleared to fight. If not, then we have to obviously (look at surgical options)."

The bad news come on the heels of another serious injury from which Foster recently recovered. Fiore said the welterweight received a hard kick to the groin six weeks ago that caused one of his testicles to burst, and doctors were forced to remove it.

Few weeks ago I took a heavy knee to the balls. I was wearing a steel thai cup, but still it hurt like a MFer and I ended up pissing blood for two days. Good times.
