Phillipe Nover Doesn’t Expect To Have Anymore Fainting Spells

Following his fainting spell backstage before UFC Fight Night 19 that forced the cancellation of his fight against Sam Stout, Phillipe Nover tells Ariel Helwani that he has been completely checked out by doctors and specialists and he’s “100% fine.” He’s not sure what caused it or the one during the TUF 8 premiere, but he suspects it had to do with cutting weight and not eating the right foods. He doesn’t expect to have anymore fainting spells moving forward, and plans to have a great year.

Phillipe Nover takes on Rob Emerson on Feb. 6 at UFC 109.
