A scary knockout courtesy of Adlan Amagov at UFC 166 left welterweight competitor TJ Waldburger down on the Octagon floor for several minutes as physicians attended to him.
The Texas native remained motionless while doctors checked him out before eventually bringing in a board and a neck brace for precaution. Waldburger was carried out of the Octagon on a stretcher before being immediately transported to a local Houston hospital according to UFC officials speaking to FOX Sports.
The good news is that Waldburger was alert and responsive and speaking to paramedics as he left the arena.
Waldburger fell victim to a knockout courtesy of Amagov, who clipped him with a quick hook standing before landing some vicious shots on the ground to finish the fight. The stoppage came at 3:45 in the first round while moving Waldburger's record to 16-8 overall.
Amagov picks up his second win in the UFC and third win in a row overall with the victory at UFC 166.
