Donate if you can. And if you can donate, maybe not bash those who can't? Lucky for you to be able to spend $20 on a fighter who needs it. But don't bust a guys balls because he can't. I make $1400 a month and have a kid. I wish I could help this guy by pitching anything I could but unfortunately I have a fatherly obligation to feed my child. Good luck with your bills! If I had a green name and made a post because I was broke asking for money (for a worthy cause) I wouldn't want any flak on my thread Phone Post

Conor Heun - Hey guys.

As some of you may know, I needed surgery to repair the torn labrum in both of my hips, as well as an avulsion fracture, following my bout with Ryan Couture in Strikeforce this past March.

Unfortunately, Zuffa's Insurance company has denied the claim so I am being forced to pay out of pocket to cover the surgeries.

Luckily, the guys at Fund-A-Fighter have stepped up to help me be creating a campaign to help me raise the money.

All of my friends in the MMA community have really stepped up to offer some amazing prizes and incentives for those who contribute.

If you can't contribute, help me out by spreading the word, bumping this thread, and sharing this link for me on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Thanks guys

Makes me glad with have free health care in the UK, sorry not rubbing it in. Message me the details of what happen to you as much as you can and I'll do a blog about it (I don't know if you know but I do a blog, I don't talk about it muh;) let me know and I'll try and get it out their pal. I'll leave it in your hands to contact me. Get well soon.

and which of my posts are actual troll posts?

the 2k he raised is great but its not nearly enough to make a dent in the 40k owed...if his doc did something wrong, however, and he has a claim, then he could have an actual windfall...

Your advice, however spot on in your own opinion it may be, is hardly what the threads intentions are. This man is asking for compassion. You, as a legal professional w a seemingly cynical and self centered view of the world, see no need for compassion, just proffering unsolicited advice and belittling those who choose to help by calling them " basement dwellers" I highly advise you to reflect on how these character defects were cultivated in a supposedly cultured and educated individual. I guess class and empathy weren't on the bar exam. Phone Post

Lol. I have some level of empathy for conor but to be honest it isn't at the highest level for me nor should it be. There a ton of people that are seriously down on their luck or abused in this world. Conor is a big boy and chose his profession and his course of action. Again I'm not discouraging anyone else to contribute but to question my character or say im self centered because I'm not going to contribute is ridiculous. I didny even say anything negative. Go white knight elsewhere fanboi. Phone Post

Man, so sorry to hear about this. I've been nickled and dimed to death with medical bills past couple years. In fact, it's kept me down right strapped.

I'll try  to donate a few bucks this month. Best wishes on a speedy recovery - health and pocket book.

So to be clear on this.

The claim was not fully denied just 40k out of 252k?

The way this has been written is that the full claim was being denied.

Please clarify.

Cliff's Notes:

The claim was completely denied by the insurance carrier.

Zuffa stepped up and paid for the surgeries deemed necessary to repair the injuries sustained in the fight.

Conor's surgeon predicted that a similar injury would reoccur if he didn't do a third preventative surgery while he was removing the screws from the second surgery. Because they didn't authorize the last procedure, and because it was to remedy a genetic hip abnormality that predisposed him to such an injury, Zuffa isn't paying for it. Conor's surgeon felt bad and forwent his fee, leaving approximately $40,000 in hospital costs (including nurses and anesthesia). Phone Post
