Bellator’s Cris Lencioni n intensive care after cardiac arrest

Bellator light-heavyweight Cris Lencioni is currently battling for his life in the hospital.

According to his wife Marca, Lencioni, 28, fainted and went into cardiac arrest on June 8 while working out.

He was taken to a nearby hospital by paramedics after they arrived at the training centre, where he has since been recovering in the intensive care unit.

"He has been under the care of excellent doctors with I and much of his family by his side," Marca wrote on Instagram. "We are all hopeful for the progress we know he will continue to make ... We are currently in uncharted territory and taking everything day by day."

Further specifics about Lencioni’s condition are unknown.

Lencioni made his Bellator debut in 2017 and currently holds a 4-2 record at featherweight. He has an overall record of 11-3, and his most recent victory came in April at Bellator 294 in Hawaii when he submitted Blake Smith in the second round.

Next up for Lencioni is Bellator 298 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where he will face James Gallagher.
