    Geoff Neal nearly died, here's his instagram post saying he was on dialysis (kidneys shut down)



    I hope he's ok, he's home now recovering but dang. That's crazy. And Robbie stepping in on a card that Zabit just pulled out of? Lawler vs. Magny for five rounds, I'd be ok with that.

    Confirmed by ESPN

    Yikes. Recover fast.

    War Lawler I was wondering where he's been. Magny should be a fight he can win if he throws strikes instead of bobbing and weaving

    Neal seems like a real stand up guy that speaks his mind with honest intentions. You can't help but root for a guy like that.

    Dayum, that's aweful.

    Hopefully Hobbie can muster one last beast performance and we get a barn-burner. Magny has heart for days though.

    Hope Neal is ok. Props to Robbie for taking the fight. Magny and him are those type of fighters who doesn't want BS and only take care of business. Would be a fun fight.

    It's the first time he's pulled out of a UFC bout. He's got some insulation, he's not in a Borg-like situation. Dude's kidneys quit on him.

    Damn poor Neal. Kidney failure at 30... does anyone know why he sustained kidney failure? Was it dehydration or cutting?

    I hope Neal feels better, and I’m sad he isn’t getting this fight. That’s one hell of a last second replacement though.
