Yeah, I find it hard to believe too. Both my lungs were, uhmm, compressed(?) (not collapsed) at the bottom and it was very difficult to breathe/talk. So how can someone with a collapsed lung fight?

huh?? is he not american though? i don't think he would get free health care in the UK unless he was a resident ... i know here in canada we have "free" health care, but if you are not a resident or don't have a health card, you have to pay ... UK must be really nice then if this is the case

The National Health Service (NHS) was set up in 1948 to provide free healthcare for all the residents of the UK, including foreign immigrants.

Lucky for him the fight was over quick so his cardio and his heart weren't tested.

That sucks though.

I guess that would be a question for Tyburn, or any other Brit.

But I know that before some Canadians (I actually have only heard this of older residents who come to Florida for a little golf and R&R, but it may be more common) come to America they take out an insurance policy so if they get injured in America they won't have to pay our (completely and utterly outragous) medical bills.

If his lung was collasped he would have been out of breath half way to the cage.

I hope Rory gets well soon... I hope his health insurance works in England.. That is going to be a huge bill if it doesn't.
actually our health service works differently and for that kind of emergency the likelihood is that I as a tax payer will foot that bill

cheers rory
