According to MMAJunkie, Magana was experiencing back pains while training for her upcoming April 26th bout with Kyra Batara. Gabriel Lamastus, her manager, told MMAJunkie that Magana suffered a herniated disc during a takedown. This prompted a nerve block to be preformed to alleviate the pain. Magana did not react well to the procedure, being diagnosed with a compression on the spinal cord roots. This resulted in an emergency surgery.
Angela Magana posted a video to her Twitter, where she discussed concerns. Magna’s grandmother died due to an allergic reaction to anesthesia, and this was her first time being put under. She expressed concerns that she would not wake back up.
This is hard to watch but we didnt know this is where she would be.
Good vibes and healing energy to our warrior! You will wake up!!!!
