Providing an update on his health after a seizure forced him off UFN 19 right before his fight, Phillipe Nover says he's feeling better but can't really explain what caused his seizure. He said everything came out normal in tests except his blood sugar being high, which might've been from eating so much after the weigh-ins. But he also said he'll be back.

Co-signed. Hopefully the UFC can get his fight with Stout rescheduled ASAP.

I'm sure he'll need some more extensive testing before a commission will let him fight again. Hopefully he can resume his career but seizures should not be taken lightly.

Especially when they can't figure out what caused it.

i would think he needs to be cleared by doctors and more closely examined in his next fight

He'll be seeing a neurologist, what happens there will determine his future. He did meet up with Dana during UFN so it sounds like ht was either released from the hospital fairly quickly or he was hospitalized after the event, probably just for observation.
