Monday night on "Caged" (Mon., 10 p.m. EST on MTV), viewers were introduced to a new face on the Minden mixed martial arts scene, John Wesley Reed.
In fact, he wasn't a novice to the world of cage fighting: John Wesley was making his return to the ring after a three-year absence. He fought a tough, scrappy bout in front of fellow cage fighters including "Golden Boy" Daniel, and at the end of three gruelling rounds John Wesley was declared the winner.
However, after the fight he took a turn for the worse and collapsed on the floor. Laying on the ground with his eyes open, he seemed dazed and unresponsive. Could something be seriously wrong with John Wesley?
Nobody in in the mixed martial arts scene was prepared to acknowledge that he might have suffered serious trauma, instead blaming his condition on "fatigue and dehydration." As John Wesley was loaded into an ambulance, his trainer confidently said, "He'll be fine. I'm sure he'll be back at it soon. ... Wasn't nothing serious." Hopefully he received a more thorough examination at the hospital.
"Caged" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.
