SAN JOSE /California/, February 19. /TASS/. The bout between well-known Russian heavyweight mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Fedor Emelianenko and Matt Mitrione has been postponed due to Mitrione’s illness, Danny Brener, Director of Communications at Bellator, informed TASS.
The bout was to take place in San Jose, California, on Sunday morning, as part of the Bellator 172 tournament.
According to Brener, the bout was postponed because Mitrione has fallen ill and could not compete.
The bout will be postponed for several months, Emelianenko said on his Instagram page.
"A few minutes ago, Bellator officially cancelled the bout, as my adversary was taken to hospital. Much work has been done. I was getting ready for that bout, but, unfortunately, it will not take place today. I wish Matt a speedy recovery. Our bout will be postponed for several months so that Mitrione could recover," Emeilanenko wrote. "Many thanks to everyone who helped me prepare for this bout, who prayed and supported me. Thank God for everything," he added.
