Roger Hollett will be out of action for an indefinite amount of time after suffering an injury to his left knee during his recent loss to Lew Polley at ECC 6: Hometown Heroes last weekend.
The injury has forced Hollett to pull out of his scheduled title defense against Ryan McClain at MFC 14: High Rollers.
Hollett’s knee was dislocated when he attemped to avoid a takedown attempt from Polley early on in the first round of their fight. Hollett fell to the ground and the referee eventually stopped the fight while Polley rained down unanswered strikes on his injured opponent.
Hollett will undergo an MRI on his knee later today to get an official diagnosis. Rehab is expected to take at least a month, meaning he may not even be able to train until December.
MFC has replaced the Hollett-McClain main event with a fight between Brad Zazulak and UFC veteran Shonie Carter:
“Shonie is a one-of-a-kind star athlete,” said MFC President Mark Pavelich. “No one can match his style, his personality and definitely no one can match his wardrobe. But make no mistake - Shonie is a tremendous fighter and a very dangerous opponent. There are few fighters with his level of experience and even fewer who can finish a fight in so many different ways like Shonie can.”
“However Brad is absolutely no pushover and Shonie better be ready to fight,” Pavelich added. “Brad has shown in past MFC events that his ready for bigger challenges and he eagerly accepted the opportunity to face such an accomplished veteran.”
