"A lightweight bout between Phillipe Nover (5-2-1 MMA, 0-2 UFC) and Sam Stout (14-5-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC) has been scratched from tonight's UFC Fight Night 19 preliminary card.

UFC president Dana White posted a Twitter message at 4 p.m. ET, an hour before the start of the event, stating Nover had suffered a seizure in his locker room but that the fighter is now "OK."

The fight was part of a seven-fight preliminary-card lineup at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City."

Nothing seems to be going right for the guy. Keep him in your thoughts.

Holy crap. I'm wondering if he's ever been diagnosed with Epilepsy?

Seizures are scary as all hell. Thank God he's alright.

This is very sad, seems like "Fainting Philipe" wasnt just a clever name.

My brother has epilepsy and he tends to get them mostly when stressed out, or whatever stress is to him. I would probably contribute Nover's seizure to epilepsy and unfortunately if diagnosed with it he probably wont be cleared to compete in the UFC anymore. You arnt aloud to drive a car with epilepsy so Im hoping the best for him and it was just a mild seizure from stress and not worse.

Bum Deal for both guys, esp Nover. Hopfully he can get his fainting/seizeures under control.

Nover has to be know by now that he could have a health problem.

I don't want to sound like a A hole but i feel bad for Sam Stout, you train for 6-8 weeks and the day of your fight you opponent has a seizure.
