Fabio Maldonado suffers injury, still plans on fighting Fedor Emelianenko

Post by Kinosis on Tue May 03, 2016 1:01 am

Fabio Maldonado will face Fedor Emelianenko on June 17, but he’s not at his best just yet.

The UFC veteran, who takes on "The Last Emperor" in St. Petersburg, Russia, at Fight Nights 50, has suffered a cervical spine injury. Maldonado told MMA Fighting that he’s not cleared to spar or train any type of fighting at the moment, but expects to be able to box in a few days.

Maldonado, who pulled out of two UFC fights in the past due to cervical spine injuries, plans on recovering and entering the ring to fight Emelianenko on June 17, but was forced to cancel a 240-pound catchweight bout with Felipe Dantas Saturday in Brazil. Dantas will now face Caio Alencar.

Sounds like they need to line someone else up. Apparently the show has a budget of 5 million anyway, get a bigger name for Fedor. Like Bobby Lashley.

Honestly i wouldn't want to be apart of this fight ....Maldonado admits openly his use of illegal substances and an interview revealed this promotion doesn't drug test its fighters at all....

Its a lose lose....you win and your automatically lumped into the "i bet he cheats" category.


Its a shame i really enjoyed some of fight nights cards....BUT

They are on UFC fight pass and don't test fighters......

Sorry fightnights but you lost a fan.

They should scratch this fedor thing let him fight in RIZIN or Bellator.

Hopefully Fedor knocks this guy out in 20 seconds and moves on to name guys.  I just want to get this over with.

I want Fedor in the Rizin 8-man Open Weight tournament. Wanderlei Silva is in it. King Mo in a recent interview sounded like he would be in it. With Fedor in it as well, that would be 3 big name guys out of 8. Winning that would mean a lot.

He was a good opponent when announced but now that I am hearing about this it's becoming a zoo.
