Alan Omer made this satement,
“Its time for me to speak out after a long time of restraint. Sometimes life hits you with a big smash on your face, you have to accept and even appreciate it.
Its been hard time for me.
In the peak of my life and my career I have been diagnosed with a braintumor.
At a routine check for my Bellator Debut on September 2020, something abnormal has been spotted in my brain. I didn’t have any symptons and first assumption was an edema. After long discussions I still got medical clearance to fight under the condition of complete clarification after the fight. Therefore, I am all the more proud of my performance and the sensational victory at that fight.
After the fight I went to routine checks, nothing changed on the MRI. 2021 I planned my US debut at Bellator 258. What a great opportunity for me! But the american sport commision didn‘t clear me to fight. I needed to clarify what this abnormality is excatly.
At this point I felt something is wrong and started to worry. Shortly after I received the the shock of my life: I very likely have a braintumor.
A marathon of examinations started. A biopsy showed that in fact it was a braintumor, and not one of nice ones.
In spring I had long surgery and the tumor has been removed to 100%. The surgery couldn’t have gone better. I’m in a very good health conditioning and even started to train again.
All my life I was confronted with death, from start facing wars in Iraq and Yemen, throughout my sport – it‘s an extreme sport- untill my diagnoses. Now in the second part of my life, I WILL FACE LIFE!
No matter how long we live, we are just a brief and certain period here. We should always appreciate our health, its the most valuable thing in life.
Now I have to recover from my physical and emotional scars, but:
I will come back to the active sport next year
I will come back stronger
I will come back different
I will make history
it will be the greatest comback in the history of MMA, I promise! 👊
Nothing has ever broke me, nothing will ever brake me.
