FORTALEZA, Brazil – A morning car accident while driving Ronny Markes to a location to cut weight is to blame for the fighter being out of Saturday's UFC on FUEL TV 10 event, manager Andre Pederneiras said.

Markes (14-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) was scheduled to face Derek Brunson (10-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) on the preliminary card of the event, which takes place at Paulo Sarasate Arena in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. But the accident left the 25-year-old Markes, fighting in his home country, with injuries – and a brief loss of consciousness – that ruled him out of the fight.

Umm, generally speaking anyone considered to have a potential neck injury is placed in an immobilizing brace before they are extricated from a vehicle. It helps diminish the risk of further injury. You can still see the person in the back seat manually immobilizing his neck as well. Standard operating procedure, I assure you.
