Update On Salmon's Condition, Says He's “Doing Good Now”

After stepping in to replace Yuki Sasaki in the Strikeforce “Tournament Series” show and suffering a flying knee knockout loss in the first round to Jorge Santiago (who would go on to win the tournament), it was feared the former UFC veteran Sean Salmon had suffered a seizure in the ring.

Following the loss, Salmon was taken to the Valley Medical Trauma Center to undergo a number of tests, including a CT scan.

The tests came back negative and it was determined that Salmon had also not suffered any bleeding of the brain, nor a skull fracture.

Adam of's “The Fight Card” radio show spoke briefly with Salmon, who confirmed those reports with a simple quote, telling

“I'm good. All the tests came back negative. I'm doing good now.”

Salmon's next fight is scheduled to be in the main event of the second ever HDNet Fights show, against top-ranked Jason “MayheM” Miller. That show is scheduled for December 15th at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas.

There is no official word yet as to whether or not Salmon will still be able to compete on the card.
