4/25 The Zone FC ***UPDATE***

Monday 20 April 2009

***UPDATE 3***
-Ivaylo Markov is out due to pneumonia, he will be replaced by Vladimir Kuchenko. He will take on Eddy Bengtson at late notice.
-Mark Lahjner has been forced to withdraw due to injury, he will be replaced by Mats Nilsson.
-The tickets are selling fast, ringside seats are sold out! If you have managed to get your tickets, dont miss the official party taking place at Berså starting at 22:30.

***UPDATE 2***
-The injury to Alexander Gustafsson's knee is confirmed to keep him out of action for several weeks. That means that his fight with Arunas Andriuskevicus will not happen. No word on finding a replacement.

-Elina Nilson, who was set to face Melissa Lan, has suffered an injury during practice and that fight has also been cancelled.

There has been some updates to this card, positive and negative...
-Elina Nilson is set to face Melissa Lan in the female fight of the night.
-Swedish fighter August Wallen is set to face Frenchman Karim Mammar.
-The BIG news: The main fight on this card is in jeopardy. Sherdog had it listed as one of the fights to watch out for in April. Alexander Gustafsson was set to face Arunas Andriuskevicus, but received a minor injury during training. He will undergo an arthroscopy early next week to determine whether he is fit to fight or not.
-As you can see by the comments, Ivaylo Markov has also had to pull out. Hopefully they will find a replacement.

Moving back to Norway does mean some changes, one of them being that I am going to try to stay on top of European MMA as well. The site will still be dedicated to Japanese MMA, but I think European events deserve more attention as well.

April 25 The Zone FC is holding an event in Gothenburg Sweden. If you are in the area, its in Lisebergshallen. Lots of talented fighters on the card and it should be fun night. Unfortuantely I wont be able to make it this time, but hopefully for the next one!

I do realize that Sherdog might not have the complete records for european fighters (something I have noticed before), but I am using their records.

Ivaylo had to pull out of the main event because of a pneumonia. I saw the guy this week here in Switzerland and he is in awfull shape...I've never seen him so thin. A possible replacement for him is being offered to The Zone right now.
