News and Notes
- Rory Markham will not be participating in the Quad Cities Silverbacks’s IFL season opener because of him recovering from laser eye surgery…
“What I had in my eye is what they call a 3% retinal hole,” said Rory. “[They call it 3%] because that’s how big the hole was. It’s impact induced, so it’s from getting hit in the eye over the course of the last couple of months.
It can lead to a retinal detachment eventually, which is a very serious injury that sometimes leads to blindness,” exclaimed Rory. “Luckily I caught it early enough in stage one, that’s the earliest you can catch it.”
Markham continued, “I went in, they welded it up, and the IFL paid for it. They [the IFL] made good on their promise to insure us as fighters, which I can do nothing but thank them for that.”
