Update: Lindland NOT dead

Good news: Matt Lindland didn’t just survive the brutal knockout he received from Vitor Belfort at Day of Reckoning, but he’s actually capable of stringing together coherant sentences:

“(I’m doing) fine, he just got me with a good shot,” Lindland told MMAInsider via text message.

According to Lindland, the California State Athletic Commission has suspended him for 45 days, after which he will be able to compete again. His fight with Belfort was the second of a three-fight contract with Affliction.

“I’ll be back whenever,” he wrote.

I’m glad MMAWeekly included that last part. People have been asking me when they’re gonna see Lindland back in action and I’ve been saying “Whenever” too, so it’s good to get confirmation.
