Fighter Drop Outs

In the past 2 days, May’s opponent dropped out due to personal reasons & Andrey’s opponent dropped out due to injury. In a crazy scramble, we were able to secure a new opponent for May while Andrey has a new opponent lined up to accept the challenge. Thanks to the coaches & teams from Lions MMA and Tristar for taking these fights on 1 week’s notice.

Both May & Andrey are moving up weight classes in order to make this happen and both have just 1 week to discard our gameplans & to make adjustments to different fighters. This is especially challenging for Andrey who spent the past 2 months preparing for a southpaw and now has just the week to adjust to an orthodox opponent.

Fighter dropouts are a part of this game but knowing that doesn’t make it easier. Props to all fighters that agree on a match and then can show up on fight night to compete.
