(MMA Junkie) -- Former UFC strawweight fighter Angela Magana is on the road to recovery after being in a coma for two days, her coach, Gabriel Lamastus, told MMA Junkie on Thursday.

“Angela is responding to the treatment and is waking up!!!,” Lamastus said in a text message. “We are over joyed (sic). She has been in and out of it.”

He added, “This started happening this morning.” Lamastus said Magana has been able to talk, as well.

The significant progress in Magana’s condition comes two days after she fell into a coma following complications from anesthesia during emergency surgery at University Hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Magana had been dealing with back pain as she prepared for an upcoming Combate Americas fight. An MRI revealed Magana had a herniated disc, but she continued to train for roughly a week while on medication until the pain became too much.

Monday, Magana had a nerve block done, but Lamastus said she didn’t respond well, leading to a diagnosis of cauda equina syndrome and the need for emergency surgery Tuesday. Magana didn’t wake up after surgery until Thursday morning.

Magana, who was released from the UFC in January 2018, had been scheduled to meet Kyra Batara at “Combate 35: Reinas” on April 26 in Los Angeles.
