Terrifying hotel elevator incident knocked a UFC fighter out of his contest Saturday night

Absolutely horrifying.

UFC fighter CB Dollaway is lucky he wasn't more severely injured after a malfunctioning hotel elevator reportedly dropped several floors to the basement on Friday with him in it.

The UFC released a statement early Saturday, acknowledging the incident and noting Dollaway has been pulled from the Cleveland card:

"UFC announced that CB Dollaway has had to withdraw from his scheduled bout at UFC 203 due to an injury he suffered last night as a result of an elevator accident at a hotel in Cleveland.

UFC officials have been in communication with hotel management, and the hotel is currently evaluating and investigating the issues surrounding the incident."

Dollaway was slated to face off against Francimar Barroso before the injury was sustained.

UFC reporter Ariel Helwani shared what he discovered when trying to get a comment on the injury:

That just terrible news for what is an already light card. UFC reportedly won't fill Dollaway's slot with another fight, and the card will go on as planned.
