Mark Kerr Out of KOTC Main Event with Knee Injury
Sources close to the fight have confirmed with Top MMA News that Mark Kerr has pulled out of his KOTC main event matchup scheduled for this Saturday, July, 18. This leaves the KOTC Canada promoters scrambling for a last minute replacement. Mark was working hard for this fight and was looking forward to taking on rising star Nick Penner (9-1) but has suffered a serious knee injury.
Promoters are scrambling for a last minute replacement, but this is a tough spot to fill on such short notice and would be a mini-miracle if they could find a worthy opponent for Nick. This was a tremendous opportunity for Penner to get a victory over an icon in the sport and help build his exposure and make a name for himself.
