Ex-UFC Fighter Angela Magana in Coma Following Emergency Surgery Complications

Mixed martial arts fighter Angela Magana is in a coma due to complications from emergency surgery she had on Tuesday.

Per MMA Junkie's Simon Samano, Magana's coach Gabriel Lamastus said she was diagnosed with cauda equina syndrome following a bad reaction to a nerve-block procedure to alleviate pain from a herniated disc suffered during training on April 7.

Magana's coaching staff posted messages on Twitter updating her status after doctors were unable to wake her:

Lamastus told Samano that Magana's surgery "went fine," but there were problems with the anesthesia.

Magana has been fighting in MMA professionally since 2007.
