Magana was experiencing pain from a herniated disc probably from a previous fight.

Fighting Her Greatest Fight

She scheduled to face off against rival Kyra Batara at “Combate 35: Reinas” due to be held in Los Angeles on April 26.

Feel I Die After This

Her intuition seems to be telling her something was going to go wrong. Hours before she was due to go surgery she posted a video about her fears of not waking up as she had an aunt who died from anesthesia.

“I feel like I’m gonna not wake up and die after this,” Magana said. It is just chilling hearing her say those words and now learning what has happened.

“She’s in a coma, and we’re waiting to hear some positive news,” said Lamastus, who was at the hospital with Magana. “The surgery went fine. The problem was anesthesia. It’s very rare that patients react badly to anesthesia, but it does happen, and I guess this is one of those rare cases. But I’m being positive. She’ll be fine, and she’ll wake up. She’s a fighter. I’m just staying positive.”

Life is short and can change in the blink of an eye
