Dadashev, who came to the fight on Friday with a 12-0-0 record, lost the fight after the referee decided to stop it before the start of the twelfth and final assault.
The Russian showed his disagreement over the arrest of the fight, but shortly after collapsed in the locker room. He was hospitalized in critical condition and underwent emergency brain surgery that has kept him in a coma since then.
