Paralyzed amateur fighter remains in critical condition
Last Saturday in Joliet, Ill., 20-year-old amateur fighter Jeff Dunbar was caught in a standing rear naked choke, and attempted to front roll/slam his way out. As a result, he is paralyzed for life.
Cagejunkies.com recently reached out to Dunbar’s mother, Kathy Dunbar, to find out if Jeff’s situation had improved. Kathy told us that Jeff is still in critical condition with his right lung not functioning properly and suffering from a constant high fever. He continues to have a tracheal tube to help him with breathing as his diaphragm has collapsed. Further Jeff still has no movement in his legs and is being fed through a tube in his stomach.
Even through all of this Jeff is in good spirits and passed along a photo of himself raising his arms, certainly emblematic of the victory he plans to achieve in this the most important battle he has ever been in… a battle for his life.
At this time a trust fund is being set up on Jeff’s behalf to cover medical and other expenses, and as CageJunkies receives the information it will be made available.
Jeff could use your prayers.
