Fightcard Entertainment to Donate All Proceeds from Cross the Line 2012 to Jeff Dunbar Fund

Written by MMARecap Staff on . Posted in News

On December 17th inside MoJoe’s Music in Joliet, Illinois, tragedy struck during Fightcard Entertainment’s Final Conflict event. Jeff Dunbar was fighting as part of the Team versus Team challenge and when his opponent took his back while standing, Dunbar tried to forward flip and throw his opponent on his own head. Unfortunately the move did not work, and Dunbar landed on his own head, breaking his neck in two places leaving him paralyzed.

Dunbar is currently recovering and going through daily rehabilitation with the latest update of him being able to move his head from side to side and up and down. Dunbar is resilient and a natural fighter and is working tirelessly to one day be able to walk again.

A fund is being set up for him and his ever increasing medical bills and FCE is looking to help lessen the burden just a bit. All proceeds from their upcoming February 16th card, Cross the Line 2012, will go directly to the fund. Tickets are on sale now and start at just $25.

The event will feature several of Dunbar’s teammates from Team No Comment fighting on the card in his honor.

Cross the Line takes place on Thursday, February 16 at Joe’s Bar on Weed Street in downtown Chicago.

Stay tuned to MMA Recap for all the latest on this event.

Fund Set Up For Team No Comment’s Jeff Dunbar

Written by MMARecap Staff on . Posted in News

At Fightcard Entertainment’s FCE 42, Jeff Dunbar competed as part of the night’s Team versus Team Challenge. His opponent Rudy Behena quickly got Dunbar’s back while standing and looked for a rear naked choke. Dunbar tried a very risky move by throwing himself forward to not only escape the position, but also to throw his opponent on his head. Unfortunately for Dunbar, he landed on his own head and it was immediately apparent that something was wrong.

Dunbar laid motionless inside the cage while the EMT staff rushed in to stabilize him in order to transport him to the nearest hospital. At first it seemed like Dunbar just suffered a stinger as he was able to move his arm and had feeling in his feet. However, that turned out to not be the case as he broke his neck in two places.

Dunbar has been in high spirits through out the entire ordeal. Even so much as thanking the promoter for the opportunity to fight. His recovery and medical expenses will be long and expensive, more so than the insurance covered at the event.

Because of the costly nature of his injury, a trust fund is being set up in Dunbar’s honor. For now, donations can be sent to the following addresses:

No Comment Martial Arts
c/o Jeff Dunbar Support Trust
1819 S Kedzie St
Chicago, Il 60623

We here at MMA Recap hope that Jeff can completely recover and will be helping out with any fundraisers, auctions or other charity events planned for him.

Here are the links to donate to the fund. Please donate anything you can as everything helps. Thank you!
