Adam Shahir Kayoom replaced by Vitor Pinto to face Nobutatsu Suzuki
My heart just dropped when I received the email informing that Adam Kayoom is pulled out of ONE FC: Warrior Spirit due to a broken rib from training. It’s just heartbreaking as Malaysian MMA fan ’cause he was just few days away from being the first ever fighter from Malaysia to be featured in a main event title bout. It’s probably even more heartbreaking for those who purchased the tickets specifically to support Kayoom. A not very well-known fighter (to me at least) from Portugal, Vitor Pinto, has taken the last minute call to face Nobutatsu Suzuki in the main event but it will a non-title bout. Why is this still the main event? I don’t know.
LATEST UPDATE: The main event bout between Vitor Pinto and Nobutatsu Suzuki is now completely pulled off from the card. Pinto has apparently failed his pre-fight medical tests. Full weigh-in results here: http://goo.gl/B09xQg
To further compensate the fans (I believe), ONE Fighting Championship has added two bouts to the card. Click on the new fight card on the right to view it. ONE FC: Warrior Spirit is happening at Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur this Friday.
