An amateur Muay Thai fighter from Minneapolis is in the ICU after he collapsed immediately following a fight on Saturday.
Nate Kosberg, who according to his LinkedIn is also a P.E. teacher for Minneapolis Public Schools and runs his own menswear business, The Finer Things, underwent surgery to remove a blood clot and to stop a brain hemorrhage.
He collapsed shortly after a fight at the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown on Saturday, despite having been smiling and talking immediately after the bout ended.
According to a GoFundMe set up to help with his medical bills, Kosberg "began to decline rapidly as he was removing his gear," and became unresponsive after leaving the ring.
"Nate is still in the ICU but is doing well, thanks to the ringside doctor and a wonderful team at HCMC," the GoFundMe says. "He has a very long road to recovery, but is thankfully still with us."
The GoFundMe has so far raised more than $13,000, which will go towards his medical care, rehab and general bills.
Kosberg is originally from Bogota, Colombia, but according to his bio for the Windom Dual Immersion School, has spent most of his life in Minneapolis, and is a graduate in child psychology from the University of Minnesota.
