I don't know much about the details... But I told u this after u followed me on Twitter. U are a hell of a fighter and very exciting to watch. I was and still am a fan my friend. I did an interview with Bloody Elbow today and when asked about the other competitors in this Seasons tournament. Ur name was one of the first who I mentioned that I respected. They were the first to inform me of the bad news... Explaining how u were no longer in the tournament do to the Mohegan Sun not giving u medical clearance to fight. I'm sure u put a lot of work in ur training camp leading up to this fight and I'm sorry to hear this.

Like I said I don't know The details of why u weren't medically cleared for ur bout this coming week. But I am definitely pulling for you man.

I have had some close calls throughout my career of injuries that could have easily gone very very wrong and been potential Career Enders. I have been very fortunate that they never reached that point and knock on wood... I've never had to go under the knife or have surgery in my entire life.

But these close calls always had me take a step back and evaluate my life. The "What If's" are endless. I know how much time, spirit, love, dedication, blood, sweat, and tears I have put into this game. To think how it would feel to have it all taken away from me is more depressing than words or emotions could ever describe. To be honest I don't think my brain and thought process could even comprehend it in any way at all. But since I began this journey I have always been aware of the dark side and worst case scenarios. Never allowing myself to be blind to the reality of what is always possible whether I like it or not.

At the end of the day man... I just want to say I'm sorry for everything u might be going through. I feel ur pain even though I may not be living it. I believe almost any fighter in this world could and should sit back and be grateful for what they have and what they have done and are able to still do.

I hope things aren't that serious and I hope ur able to get things cleared up and get back to smashing fools faces in and entertaining all us fans.

Best Wishes
