Angela Magana is fighting for her life. Former UFC fighter is in a coma following complications from emergency surgery.

Early Tuesday morning, Magana posted on Facebook and Twitter that she was “about to be put in a gown and cap for surgery.”

Magana reportedly herniated a disc in her back and had to undergo the procedure.
Roughly 14 hours later, an update appeared detailing that Magana is in a grave situation:

When reached early Wednesday morning by MMA Junkie, Lamastus explained Magana had been experiencing back pain recently while preparing for a Combate Americas fight. She was injured after being taken down during training on April 7. As a result, she went in for an MRI, which revealed a herniated disc. Magana, determined to fight, was prescribed medication the next day while she continued to train, but the pain became too much, Lamastus said.

On Monday, she had a nerve block done, hoping to ease the pain, but Lamastus said she didn’t react well. That led to a diagnosis of cauda equina syndrome and the need for emergency surgery on Tuesday.

“She’s in a coma, and we’re waiting to hear some positive news,” said Lamastus, who was at the hospital with Magana. “The surgery went fine. The problem was anesthesia. It’s very rare that patients react bad to anesthesia, but it does happen, and I guess this is one of those rare cases. But I’m being positive. She’ll be fine, and she’ll wake up. She’s a fighter. I’m just staying positive.”
