After having a heart attack earlier this week, legendary fighter Randy Couture has released a statement, in which he reported he’s doing well.

The UFC Hall of Famer felt some discomfort and pain during a workout on Wednesday, and ended up walking to a hospital in Los Angeles. As it turns out, Couture had incurred a heart attack.

Since then, the 56 year-old star released the following statement (quotes via MMA Fighting):

“Contrary to recent rumors, I have not kicked the bucket yet,” Couture wrote. “I am alive and well. Special thanks to the amazing staff at Cedars Sinai Hospital. From the ER to cardiac ICU thanks for taking care of me.

“I’m one of those people that has crazy thick blood and nominally high bad cholesterol. Unfortunately, those 2 factors combined to create a nice clot including my diagonal artery. The (catheterization laboratory) at Cedars got right on it, cleared it out and placed a stent in its place.

“Thanks to all of you out there expressing your concern. Your love and support mean the world to me and my family. Live your lives to the fullest. You never know when you’ll draw that last breath in!”
