International Fight League veteran Shane Ott is listed in critical condition and his recovery remains uncertain following a motorcycle accident outside of Reading, Pennsylvania early Sunday morning.
Sam Caplan of Five Ounces of Pain was the first to report the story on Monday afternoon and officials at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia have since confirmed that Ott was flown to their facility from a Reading hospital after the accident with the Reading Eagle Newspaper.
According to the newspaper, Ott lost control of his motorcycle and crashed shortly before 2 AM ET on Sunday morning. An investigation into the accident is currently ongoing. Rumors had circulated Sunday evening that Ott had actually passed away as a result of his injuries, but several family members and friends have since refuted the claims.
