Nover Had Seizure Backstage, UFN 19 Fight With Stout Canceled

Sam Stout & Phillipe Nove Staredown at UFC Fight Night 19 Weigh-Ins

The UFC Fight Night 19 prelim fight between Phillipe Nover and Sam Stout has been canceled according to UFC pres Dana White. Nover apparently had a seizure backstage earlier this afternoon.

The nover stout fight is off. Nover had a seizure in the locker room. He is ok. Stout was very cool during the incident and is a class act!!

According to multiple reports, Nover was taken to the hospital, however MMA Fanhouse is passing along an update that he’s since been released, but still won’t be cleared to fight.

UPDATE: Jon Bier, a publicist for Tokyo 5 Jeans, Nover’s sponsor, gave FanHouse the following statement: “Phillipe was sitting in the locker room relaxing before the fight. EMT was called after he began shaking. It was classified as a seizure. He’s been released from the hospital and is OK but is not cleared to fight.”

Very weird. Hopefully Phillipe doesn’t have an serious underlying conditions that could have caused the seizure.
