Lane was the victim of an awful beatdown, which occurred on Saturday night when he was leaving the Men Tell All after party, TMZ reports. Sources told the publication that Lane, along with a crew member, were attacked by a group of at least five "thugs."

Apparently, the fight turned ugly quickly, and Lane and the crew member took several shots to the face before someone ran for help and brought out (super ripped) contestant Ben Zorn to break up the fight.

Lane suffered two black eyes and was reportedly taken to the ER because he was not feeling well, and his friends were concerned he might have had a concussion. However, one thing that is not bruised is his pride, because according to witnesses, Lane put up a good fight.

According to the publication, sources claim Lane believes his attackers were part of a gang. But there is something a little strange about this story: No one decided to call the police either during or after the fight took place.
