Back Injury forces me to withdraw from Dec. 5th fight vs. Frankie Edgar

I just wanted to let all my fans know publicly, that I was forced to withdraw from my upcoming fight on Dec 5th vs Frank Edgar. My back has been a problem since my last fight vs Josh Neer, and I did not give it the proper rest it deserved. I am now dealing with 3 herniated discs in my back. I know no fighter ever goes into a fight 100%. I fought with knee injuries, hand injuries, and many bumps and bruises and I have fought through it, but it was impossible to fight through this back injury. It took me over a week to come to terms with the fact that I would have to pull out of this fight.

One-Legged Fighter Makes Martial Arts History

Mixed Martial Arts is intense for any fighter — so imagine entering the ring with one less leg than your opponent. That's exactly the obstacle facing Arizona fighter Matt Betzold, but he's not letting his handicap keep him out of the ring.

Betzold, who was given poisoned candy when he was six years old, had his left leg amputated below the knee by doctors.
