Buckland Out, Ford Left Without an Opponent for Aggression FC 14
All Ryan Ford wants to do is fight in front of his home town fans one last time before he makes the jump full time to Bellator. Unfortunately, that is looking less and less likely to happen. Top MMA News has confirmed with Andrew Buckland that he was forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury that he suffered in a grappling tournament over the weekend. Buckland stated that when he accepted the fight his shoulder was sore but during training today it began to feel worse and worse.
Buckland stepped in to take the fight after Ford’s original opponent, Tyler “TNT” Jackson was forced to pull out after suffering an elbow injury in training. Aggression officials worked tirelessly to find a replacement with less than a week to go prior to the event and managed to pull a rabbit out of their hat with Buckland. Will they be able to find another late notice opponent? Not only does Aggression have the difficulty of finding someone to take on the 5th ranked Welterweight in Canada on only a few days notice, they also have to have the opponent approved by Bellator.
