    I’m calling bullshit on Nelson not having medicals complete. He took this fight last minute and was assured by CFC and commission doctor that bloodwork would be ready in time.

    Henderson simply didn’t show up to weigh-ins despite repeated attempts to reach him.

    Will reserve judgement on his reasons till I hear the full story but the blame for this fight being cancelled lies 100% with Henderson.

    Wouldn’t Nelson go to Benji (the commission doc) for his bloodwork being a late replacement? Benji sends the results direct to the commission here in MB. I wonder who skewed up? I’m not blaming anyone bit it seems odd to me that he would come to winnipeg without meds or te ability to get his meds done.

    I’d like to hear from M.A.D. on this one, this isn’t his first rodeo and I find it hard to believe that he’d fly Kyle down and pay for his corner’s flight if he thought that Kyle’s medicals weren’t either in order or made arrangements for that to happen.

  12. Kyle The Monster Nelson says:

    i showed up Wednesday and did all my medicals and blood by the night of the weigh in we were waiting for the commission doc to show up to ask him about my blood work. and from what i understood my blood work was going to be in Friday morning and they could still swing the fight. i was on weight and ready but jon showed up 45min late and didnt call to tell any one he was coming at all so they called the fight off. promoters and every one were great hope to get a chance to fight in front of the Winnipeg crowd soon.
