Headliner falls from BFL 7 Card – Denis Kang

Kang’s long awaited return to fight on BC soil has been upset. Kang was scheduled to fight Jesse ‘JT Money’ Taylor at BFL’s first Pro/Am card in Nanaimo BC. Suffering from an upper body injury, Kang has been instructed by doctors that he cannot fight next week and his match in Korea is currently in serious question.

However, it’s not all bad news. Dennis Kang will still make the trip from Montreal, QC to attend BFL 7 as a featured guest and will meet fans and sign autographs.

Jay Golshani, BFL President had this to say on the matter: 
“We got the news yesterday from Kang that he is definitely out for his fight on the 26th due to an injury.  We tried the most logical replacements in Jason Macdonald, David Louisou, Kalib Starnes, Joey Villasenor, Terry Martin, Joe Dirkson, Thiago Goncalves, Jordan Mein, Drew Mcfedries and Gerald Harris and they are all unable to take this fight for either contractual obligations or other fights scheduled in the same timeframe. 

We hate to have mismatches headlining our cards, and we try tostay away from it even if it’s a last minute replacement.  Since most ofthe top 85ers outside the UFC can’t fight Taylor on short notice, we havedecided to ask Taylor to step out of his weight class and fight B.C.’s ClayDavidson (5-2) from Toshido at a catch weight of 202 pounds.  

We believe that with the size advantage and Clay’s ground game, this is the mostlogical replacement and stylistically makes for an interesting match up.Denis Kang will be back  headlining Battlefield 8 in Nanaimo B.C. on May28th, and all the fans who are attending this event will receive 15%percent off the May 28th event headlined by Kang.  (They have to keeptheir ticket stub and they will get the exact same seat for the next event at a 15% discount.)  Denis kang will still be making  the trip down fromMontreal on March 26th to meet the fans and the media.”
