Drakkar Klose suffered from health problems after being pushed by Jeremy Stephens during a pre-match encounter, and was unable to compete at UFC Vegas 24.

Stephens shoved, keeping Klose out of the floor

“I apologize to the fans looking forward to seeing the next show, I did my best to be able to play, but the problem was out of my control,” Klose tweeted on April 17. “After being pushed by Jeremy at the UFC meeting, I immediately felt my hands numb and my neck was strangled.”

Vice President Sean Shelby and several UFC staff went through Klose’s physical exams for two hours. And the 33-year-old American boxer spent the night of April 17 eating, rehydrating, recovering and then practicing lightly. But when he woke up, Klose still had a headache, nausea and just wanted to lie down. The UFC doctor prescribed Klose, but a few hours later, he still vomited, and was rushed to hospital.

According to the results of computer tomography at the hospital afterwards, Klose suffered a sprained neck and brain concussion.

Stephens argued that the opponent was provoking first. “Klose came too close to being aggressive, aimed at pre-battle aggression. And I couldn’t tolerate that disrespect,” tweeted the 34-year-old American boxer.

Not long after that, UFC announced that the match between Klose and Stephens was canceled, because Klose was not fit to compete. The heavyweight match between former champions Andrei Arlovski and Chase Sherman was promoted to the main match at UFC Vegas 24.

The UFC has confirmed, the Stephens vs Klose match will be reorganized as soon as possible.
