On Sunday June 30th Marcos “El Chino” Maidana was involved in a car accident which caused trauma to the fighters chest.
The Margarita native was riding as a passenger in a Chevy Meriva that was being driven by his friend who is also a fighter Jascinto Baigorria. “They were coming back to Margarita from a sparring session being held in Jascinto. The accident took place in the town of Malabrigo,” said Sebastian Contursi.
Maidana was immediately taken to the hospital where he was being treated by Dr. Guidi and is only suffering pain and trauma to the chest. He was then moved to Reconquista for further studies and right now is being thought of as just a scare.
