Welterweight Brian Foster suffered a brain hemorrhagewhich results in him being out of his UFC 129 fight against Sean Pierson. The 27-year-old fighter posted the announcement two weeks ago on his Twitter account.
The Ontario Athletic Commission commissioned an MRI sixty days prior to the bout according to a friend. The test revealed a damaged blood vessel. Foster believes the injury took place during a hard sparring session he had before the test.
“I was dealing with a really good boxer and he caught me with a left hook that rocked me a little bit,” Foster said. “I hadn’t been rocked like that very often. I’ve never been knocked down. My record says I’ve been knocked out before but I was not unconscious in that fight.
