Phillipe Nover Suffers Seizure, UFN 19 Fight With Sam Stout Canceled

Phillipe NoverA lightweight matchup between Phillipe Nover and Sam Stout scheduled for the preliminary card of tonight’s UFC Fight Night 19 event has been canceled after Nover suffered a seizure backstage before the fight.

“He is OK,” wrote UFC President Dana White in a Tweet announcing that the fight was off. He posted in a later Tweet that Nover was “sitting ringside and 100 percent healthy.”

A finalist on The Ultimate Fighter 8, Nover dropped a decision to Efrain Escudero at the TUF 8 Finale in December then suffered his second-straight loss to Kyle Bradley in May via first-round TKO.
