Many prominent MMA fighters say you have to be willing to die in the cage in order to compete. On Friday, one fighter did.

Middleweight CJ Hancock, 32, said he died in the cage and needed to be revived by paramedics after collapsing to the ground during a fight at the Legacy Fighting Alliance event at Arena Theatre in Houston Friday night.

Hancock, who collapsed during the second round, said his heart stopped and he suffered kidney failure but is now "okay," the fighter wrote in a Facebook post published late Friday night.

"Well I died tonight in the cage.... I'm okay. Thanks everyone. I'll reply when I can," Hancock wrote. "My heart stopped, and I had kidney failure, they did cpr and hit me with the EKG twice and brought me back."
