High withdraws from fight due to burst appendix on New Years Day


How was your New Years? A little hungover maybe?

Jason High's New Years Day was spent discovering he had a burst appendix, and would have to withdraw from a fight for the first time.

High, 2-1 in the UFC, had been scheduled to fight the debuting Beneil Darius at UFC Fight Night 35 on January 15.

High detailed the expisode, via Twitter.

•You have GOT to be f---ing kidding me…

•F--- appendicitis & anybody that love him. @MikeKogan Sorry @UFC & Beniel. Obviously wont be able 2 fight. *sad face*

 •Well…this year started of with a bang.

•Ruptured appendix… On New Year’s Day. See y’all bitches after surgery. F word.

•So no surgery just yet. They said its prob been burst a few days but I’m a knucklehead. They’re gonna insert a tube to drain puss & wait for inflammation to subside before they do surgery. Having that procedure tomorrow AM. Thanks for all the kind words & thoughts.

•Oh & btw morphine is trash & dilauded kicks all kinds of ass.

•First time I’ve ever had to pull out of a fight for any reason. Won’t be making a habit of it.

•Also the first time I’ve had surgery. With the exception of my wisdom teeth. Never had stitches either so I guess I was due.

•Thanks @LiborioATT for coming to pick me up & hanging out with me at the hospital. Stand up guy right there.

•Had to do it. Thanks again @LiborioATT it’s nice to have company.

 •Oh & shout out to the voters of Colorado for sacking up & finally ending marijuana prohibition. Tax it & fix public schools.

•Looking good after the procedure !! This man was training with a ruptured appendix ! TUFF

High has been replaced by Charlie Brenneman.

Jason is a cool dude he gets tattooed at my shop in Kc. We we were cracking jokes back and forth. After he got his leg done he smiled and said you can't see the shit anyway.
