On Sept. 16, the day he was supposed to fight Rob Emerson at UFC Fight Night 19 in Oklahoma City, state athletic commission officials scratched Nover from the card.Commission officials said "The Ultimate Fighter 8" runner-up suffered a seizure; Nover said he merely fainted. He had done so once before; on his first day of filming for "TUF 8," he famously passed out in the lineup, which caused an immediate stir among his castmates. He said he had merely overheated in the Las Vegas swelter.

Someone should proof read this stuff that's published. The writer states that Nover was supposed to fight Emerson when he fainted but it was Sam Stout.

"who now faces Rob Emerson" - maybe they inserted the word "now"...

But anyway the guy is a nurse, you'd think he'd have enough understanding of how the body works not to eat the way he was eating and suffer the fainting spells.

...unless he's full of s***, and has a more severe problem.
