Bryan Barberena has emergency surgery, out of next weekend’s UFC fight

Bryan Barberena was forced to undergo “emergency exploratory laparotomy due to internal bleeding from a couple ruptured arteries in his omentum” according to a post on the UFC welterweight fighter’s Instagram page.  The emergency procedure has forced Barberena to be removed from the November 14 main card fight against Daniel Rodriguez at UFC Vegas 14.

The post reads: “Bryan had an emergency exploratory laparotomy due to internal bleeding from a couple ruptured arteries in his omentum. He had 1.5 liters of blood in his abdomen. Bryan’s surgery was successful. He is having pain, which is expected, but he is doing good. The doctor said because he is young and healthy he will have a quick recovery. Unfortunately, due to the surgery, Bryan will not be fighting on November 14th. He is extremely disappointed, and was ready to put on a show, but he will be back ASAP (once he’s healed). He apologizes to his opponent Daniel Rodriguez, and wishes him all the best. There are not enough words in the world to properly thank our support system. We have an incredible family, and friends we call family, and we are so very blessed.
-Team BAM BAM”
