After being KO'd in a recent fight, fighter Sammy Vazquez is in critical condition in a hospital and is fighting for his life. His current prognosis is not good.

It seems that the inevitable first MMA-related death may be upon us, but hopefully he finds a way to pull through.

Neither are particularly well regulated in Texas - I wouldn't be surprised if this was a pre-existing condition he wouldn't have been cleared to fight with in another state. The Texas Boxing Commission sucks BALLS.

When I have some more money as the holidays get closer I plan to make a small donation, I can't afford to give too much but I'd feel good about it knowing I'm doing my part to help them out. Hopefully other people will donate too.

Salmon’s reported seizure comes on the heels of a life-threatening injury to Sammy Vazquez, who has been in critical condition, since suffering a knockout in a fight that took place on Oct. 20, according to The Fight Network

Vazquez has been in a critical care unit at Saint Joseph’s Medical Center following a third round knockout loss to Vince Libardi on a Renegades Extreme Fighting card in Houston, Texas.

The Fight Network has not updated Vazquez’s status since Nov. 15.

i wonder what his current state is. i sure hope he is recovering, best of luck to him and his friends and family

(does anyone know if the friday mentioned in the main post was this recent friday or a previous one?)

I already posted this news last week when it was on the fight network but guess you didnt see it

Did he have the massive stroke since the original story... I would think that would degrade his situation considerably

The reported stroke was included in Cornish's original post... Such a shame... but this is a late release by mmanews, this is all old info... Hopefully an update gets released soon... (not knocking the poster, knocking the late releasing news site)

Oh, and to the guy who posted the info about Salmon's seizure: That was a false report, he didnt have a seizure. He was just Ko'ed "normally" (if there is such a thing )

Oh, cool... Just wanted to let you know that it didnt happen in case you were adding it. I know I was concerned for the guy until I read that it was false...

What the hell. I want to know what really happened. Sherdog or MMAWeekley need to report on this and give the full story.
