"The Ultimate Fighter" season eight semi-finalist Phillipe Nover has been forced to withdraw from a fight with Sam Stout on the undercard of tonight's Ultimate Fight Night 19 due to medical issues.

The 25 year-old Nover suffered a seizure sometime Wednesday afternoon and was scratched from the card, according to a posting on UFC president Dana White's official Twitter account at 3:20 C.S.T. Nover is reportedly doing "ok" after the incident.

"(Sam) Stout was very cool during the incident and is a class act," wrote White.

The UFC has yet to announce the change officially.

Nover last fought at UFC 98 in May, losing to Kyle Bradley by TKO in the first round.
