LONDON, Sept. 28 — British mixed martial artist Lee Murray (Pictures) is in critical condition following an incident early Wednesday morning outside the Funky Buddha Nightclub in Mayfair, a wealthy area of London, according to The London Evening Standard.

Murray had been stabbed repeatedly in the chest, puncturing a lung and severing an artery. He remains in critical condition after having undergone two operations, The Standard reported.

A veteran of Cage Rage and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Murray had been attending a birthday party for "Page 3" girl Lauren Pope before violence broke out around 3:15 a.m that escalated into a mass brawl involving 25 people. As of Wednesday evening no arrests had been made, though police said that they are hunting several suspects.

Officers found one victim outside the club and another lying on the pavement near Green Park tube station. Murray, himself, had collapsed in a pool of blood 100 yards away.
