A knockout loss that appeared to leave WEC 39 competitor Marcos Galvao convulsing on the canvas floor apparently didn't leave the fighter with any substantial injuries.

Galvao suffered a swift 18-second knockout defeat to fellow bantamweight Damacio Page on the preliminary card of the March 1 event.

An exam and CAT scan after the Sunday event and a subsequent MRI on Monday cleared Galvao of any serious injuries.

Good to see Galvao is in good shape.

That was one of the worst knockouts I've ever seen, made even more frightening with the rumor of the seizure and the stiffness Galvao exhibited after the fight was called. I'm glad to see he's okay.

That was definately a BRUTAL KO.......I was stoked for Page, but at the same time was hoping Galvao wasnt seriously injured....
