Nice fight card on my birthday. Too bad I won't be able to see it.
Jeff Monson tore his pectoral muscle and is out the rest of the year. Nikita Krlov (13-0) replaces him.
And who is that guy?
20 year old Ukranian heavyweight, won all 13 fights in under 3 minutes, but not fought any decent competition.
Well I guess this is his chance to either challenge himself.
Anyone hear about the weigh ins?
Nah but hearing the cards been shaken up a bit due to injuries.
Smoldarev-Ibragimov has been cancelled due to injuries, and Malikov has pulled out with injury too and been replaced by Gabriel Tampu (5-0).
So as far as i'm aware, there are just 3 of the quarters happening today..
Kenny Garner (12-3) vs. Konstantin Gluhov (24-12)
Alexei Kudin (14-5) vs. Chaban Ka (5-1)
Nikita Krylov (13-0) vs. Gabriel Tampu (5-0)
So what'll be the final quarterfinal and when?
