Rising welterweight Geoff Neal has released a statement, in which he says he “almost died” due to the medical issue that pulled him from UFC Vegas 8.

Neal was booked to fight Neil Magny at the August 29th event. But the 29-year-old was forced to drop out after becoming seriously ill.

More recently the welterweight shared out the statement below.

According to a follow-up report from MMA Junkie, doctors are still not clear what led to Neal’s condition. The fighter, who tested negative for COVID-19, is no longer hospitalized and is back home recovering.

Robbie Lawler has reportedly agreed to step in and fight Magny on August 29th.

Neal (13-2) has won seven straight fights and is coming off a first-round, stoppage of Mike Perry in December.
