In what could very well be a first, a UFC fighter has had to withdraw from a scheduled bout because of a ruptured appendix. Jason High, who was slated to take on Octagon newcomer Beneil Dariush at UFC Fight Night 35: “Rockhold vs. Philippou” on January 15, tweeted a series of updates yesterday that painted a picture of hospital visits and some serious medical care.










High sports an 18-4 overall record, and is 2-1 in the UFC with wins over Anthony Lapsley and James Head. No word on his replacement.
