According to the Junkie, Sean Salmon suffered a seizure following a flying knee to the head by Jorge Santiago at yesterdays Strikeforce: Tournament event in San Jose, CA. Salmon was promoted to the main event in the middleweight tournament after Japaneses fighter Yuki Sasaki was denied a licence due to an abnormal MRI.

Salmon lay motionless for more than a minute – in a scene all too familiar. Back in January, Salmon suffered a similar knockout loss, via head kick, to Rashad Evans at a UFC Fight Night event.

Like the UFC loss, Salmon was taken out of the cage in a stretcher but had movement in all of his extremities.

However, California State Athletic Commission Executive Director Armando Garcia later told that Salmon had suffered a seizure while in the cage, which had the doctors “very concerned” and questioning his ability to ever fight again.

Garcia later informed us that Salmon had undergone a CT scan at Valley Medical Hospital that ruled out bleeding of the brain, as well as any skull fractures.


  1. Sean Salmon is the Trent Green of MMA. He needs to retire before he dies. No joke.

  2. He's done. All of the trainers commented that to get knocked out is one thing but to have a seizure when your knocked out, they cant clear someone like that.

  3. Sorry to see it, but better retired than dead.

  4. That's too bad. Poor guy. It's a tragedy.
