Exclusive: Jason MacDonald Replaces Kang in Main Event
Top MMA News has been able to confirm that Denis Kang has been forced to withdraw from his March 20th bout in Montreal for W-1: Bad Blood. Denis had to pull out of the fight due to an injury sustained during training which is believed to be a herniated disk.
W-1 continues to impress by saving the main event by signing Jason ‘The Athlete’ MacDonald to face Vernon White at the Pierre Charbonneau Centre in Montreal. MacDonald is coming off a split decision victory over Solomon Hutcherson at MFC 23. This will be Jason’s first fight outside the borders of the UFC or the MFC in almost four years. Kang’s injury forces him to the sidelines along with Carlos Newton who was originally tapped to face Chris Clements before he sustained an injury himself during training. Newton was replaced by John Alessio in the semi main event.
