Great article on Brian Foster and what he's been going through the past couple years. From being medically released from the UFC while he was on a 2 fight winning streak to almost making his Bellator debut and where he is at now. This guy keeps hitting roadblocks in his career but he won't stop. He is a true warrior.

Pretty long but very interesting if your willing to read. The author has spent a lot of time with Foster the past couple years interviewing him and he talks about doing everything he can to help Foster.

Good article' date=' well written and shows you the hard toll some fighters go thru just to try and compete. Shame he couldn't get it sorted out when he got the first knock back, amazed nobody couldn't have arranged a neurologist appointment for him[/quote']

 

Exactly. Yeah he's just had a run of bad luck lately. I couldn't believe it when he was released from the UFC. He was on a 2 fight winning streak, finished Matt Brown in his last fight, and was showing a lot of improvement. Plus he is one of the most exciting fighters in MMA and has never had a boring fight.

 

He'll fight through it though. I know he will get to fight again it's just a matter of time. Hopefully the UFC will bring him back in the future.

I have to admit I had forgotten all about him. But I seriously hope he can get the help he needs to get back in the cage and do what fighters do. Hardest thing for a fighter is not being able to fight when you are healthy. the frustration must get intense

I always like(d) watching the guy fight' date=' and it sucks that the only thing stopping him from returning is the money involved in having an MRI done. The guy that wrote this article should start a donation fund to pay for it. I'd give what I could to help out.[/quote']

 

Yeah he's a very entertaining and exciting fighter. It does suck that it comes down to money and medical problems that's preventing him to fight. I agree that's a good idea I would definitely donate.

Yeah he kinda fell off the map after being released from the UFC unless you followed him regularly. Me too man he is my favorite fighter so I really hope he get's everything sorted out so he can fight again. He has been looking better than ever in his past 4 fights also he has showed a lot of improvement.
