He had 1.5 liters of blood in his abdomen. Bryan’s surgery was successful. He is having pain, which is expected, but he is doing good. The doctor said because he is young and healthy he will have a quick recovery. Unfortunately, due to the surgery, Bryan will not be fighting on November 14th. He is extremely disappointed, and was ready to put on a show, but he will be back ASAP (once he’s healed). He apologizes to his opponent Daniel Rodriguez, and wishes him all the best. There are not enough words in the world to properly thank our support system. We have an incredible family, and friends we call family, and we are so very blessed. -Team BAM BAM

Barberena, 31, was set to fight for the second time this year. In his last fight in September, Barberena snapped a two-fight losing streak with a unanimous decision win over Anthony Ivy.

It’s unclear if a replacement opponent will be sought for Rodriguez. The 33-year-old is on a nine-fight winning streak that dates back to February 2018, including his first three UFC bouts. Rodriguez made his promotional debut this past February at UFC Fight Night 167 and defeated Tim Means by submission. Rodriguez followed that up with a decision win over Gabriel Green and a first-round knockout of Dwight Grant.
