The Ultimate Fighting Championship must now find Adlan Amagov (13-2-1 MMA) a new opponent. Jason High, who was set to face Amagov in a Jan. 15 welterweight match up at UFC Fight Night 35; was rushed to the hospital due to a ruptured appendix early yesterday (Jan. 1) morning.

After arriving at the hospital, High sent out two tweets lauding Ricardo Liborio, the legendary Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu trainer, who teaches High at American Top Team. Liborio apparently picked up High and took him to the hospital after his case of appendicitis.

High will need some time to recover, but he had words for the UFC brass.

Hopefully High recovers soon, and hopefully Joe Silva and the UFC find an opponent for Amagov in time for Jan. 15.
