Uriah Hall suffered “mini heart attack” and “seizure” during weight cut.

Uriah Hall

Uriah Hall had an unbelievably scary situation on his hands trying to make weight last weekend.

Uriah Hall, as many of you know, Uriah Hall was supposed to fight Vitor Belfort as the co-main event of last weekends Fight Night 124 event in St. Louis.  However, Uriah never made it to the scales for his fight after fainting on his way to the weigh-ins. It was reported that he’d been transported to the hospital and it was a scary situation.  Now Uriah has cleared up a lot about what happened, and it’s not good.

He did an Instagram video that revealed that he’d suffered a heart attack and seizure during the event. At what point do we say enough is enough and figure out a solution to the weight cutting dilemma in MMA?  While most clamor for more weight classes, that alone can’t be the solution, as people will still try and struggle to get down to a lower weight class to have a size and strength advantage. I think the Athletic Commission unanimously have to implement a rule where you can only compete near a certain percentage of your natural weight.

USADA can start weighing fighters in during their drug tests and based on those “out of competition” weights, it will determine what class they can compete in. I mean, it’s just a suggestion, but we need to do something. Here’s the video that Uriah Hall did and it sheds some light on how scary this can be.
