Bantamweight fighter Stoliarenko was scheduled to fight Julia Avila on the prelims of Saturday night’s Fight Night: Holland vs Brunson.

However, despite successfully making the weight limit, something appeared to be seriously wrong with the Lithuanian fighter.

After falling off the scales upon her first chance to weigh-in, Stoliarenko was given a minute to gather herself before trying again.

It was her second attempt which really shocked fans though – As her body appeared to seize up and convulse, it quickly became apparent the fighter needed urgent medical attention.

Her bout with Avila has been called off whilst fans await to hear how she is.

We wish her all the best.
