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 MMAjunkie.com 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.

Damn, a ruptured testicle?! Was he not wearing a cup while sparring?

Regardless, I wish him all the best.

I trained with a guy 15 years ago who took a kick to the groin and lost a testical.

At first he did not want a prosthetic one, but after his wife was to freaked out by it they implanted a fake one to look more natural.

disbeliever - I trained with a guy 15 years ago who took a kick to the groin and lost a testical.



Was the guy wearing a cup? If so, metal/plastic?

I took a HARD shot to the nuts playing hockey. I couldn't finish the game and couldn't walk, laugh or sit correctly for almost a week. No perma damage though, thank God. I was wearing a plastic cup at the time, and after that I switched to a steel one. Never took a shot of the same magnitude again, but still felt a lot safer.

I know a kick would come in at a different angle which probably makes a difference, but I'm still curious what he had for protection.

Kind of makes an argument for thai style groin protecion + a cup... but like Guy Mezger said, you need a REALLY good friend to help you out LOL

Now for the standard question: If he needs surgery, is the UFC going to foot the bill or help out?

I know, I know, "it didn't happen in the cage," but as a UFC fighter, you are contractually obligated to perform ONLY in the UFC, and it is heavily implied that you need to perform well--and hence train to perform well--if you wish to stay under contract.

So that being said, couldn't it be legally argued that any time in the gym spent training to perform in the UFC should be covered under insurance, similar to how injuries sustained in an NFL practice would be covered?

I know this isn't an issue yet, but I was just curious as to everyone's insight.

Wasn't wearing any cup. Was a last end of class sparring session that was not planned for. They went out got into it, kick laded and he dropped down crying in pain. he later described it as "exploding inside me".
