Injury Forces Kalib Starnes Off AFC Card
Top MMA News brought you the news that Kalib Starnes was going to be fighting in his home province August 22. Now, Top MMA News has learned that Starnes has pulled out of the Armageddon Fighting Championships’ inaugural card due to injury. Starnes was scheduled to face former UFC and IFL fighter Matt Horwich in the August 22nd main event.
AFC promoter Jason Heit stated to Top MMA News that “Starnes has recieved stitches over his eye and has had to pull out. We are looking for a replacement.” It has been a tough year for Kalib Starnes. Earlier this year his UCW bout in Manitoba against Bret Bergmark was pulled a week prior to the fight. Its also unfortunate news for the fledgling promotion, but that is how the fight game often works.
The huge 16 fight card is being held in Victoria, BC at the Bear Mountain Arena. Tickets are available here.
