For those of you who don't know him, Ross is a British MMA fighter who has fought at Cage Rage many times, most recently against Scott Jansen and before that against Ross Pointin.



"Contrary to local radio news reports this morning which stated that Ross “The Boss” Mason had died after receiving stab wounds outside a Birmingham Nightclub; we can now announce that these reports were incorrect.

However we are able to confirm that Ross Mason was found in the early hours of this morning with serve head injuries and had initially died as he was taken to Alexandra Hospital in Redditch. However he was resuscitated at the Hospital and is presently in a critical condition in the ICU Unit.

Earlier today Marc Goddard was taken into an office at the Liverpool Olympia and was informed of Ross' death, due to these incorrect media reports. Goddard and his Management then decided he would not fight later tonight at Cage Gladiators, because he wanted to be with Ross' family as they are close personal friends.

Goddard was then taken back to Birmingham only to be told that Ross had not died but was in a "critical state" on a life support machine. This has only added to Marc's turmoil and it would be an understatement to say that his mind was not connected with fighting at this time.

Everybody at Warrior Promotions and Cage Warriors are deeply saddened by this incident and our thoughts are with Ross, his family and friends during this dreadful ordeal. We also hope he will be able to pull through this and make a full recovery."

UPDATE:


"As most are now aware that the local media story that went out yesterday regarding Ross are infact untrue. Ross is however still critical and on ITU in the Alexandre Hospital Redditch, in his true fighting spirit and in fighting terms Ross scored a 10/8 round over night. He has made good progress opening his eyes and making movement. Ross is still not out of the woods yet and all our prayers and best wishes go out to his wife, children, family and friends.

Ross is friends to all he meets and is a true warrior, he is fighting his toughest fight at the moment and really needs more support than we have ever gave him before. Im sure all his friends and family will need all the support we can offer."

"just got back from hospital. yesterday ross was 20% oxygene on his own - today he is 50% so a very marked improvement.

it will now be assessed tomorrow if they can turn of lsm for him to take over on his own, its looking much, much better.

his partner, [ and the boss ] and all have been told about the hundreds of well wishers on here."
