Las Vegas, NV – The lone heavyweight bout on the card fell out UFC Vegas 64 in the early hours of Saturday morning due to Josh Parisian suffering a medical emergency.
Parisian made the announcement via his Instagram account.
“One of the worst days of my life. I unfortunately will not be fighting. I woke up at 1:07am this morning with my heart beating out of my chest and soaked in sweat. I tried to relax over the next 2 hours, but I going in and out of chest pain, cold sweats, nausea, and light headedness. I decided to go to the ER at around 3am and was there until 8:30am. They were able to get rid of my nausea and chest pain, but my palpitations had gotten worse. In over 50 fights, I’ve never pulled or been pulled from one. I am devastated myself, everyone that helped me this camp, the ufc, the fans and my opponent. I’ll be seeing my cardiologist when I get home to see what is going on with my hear and go from there.”
