Absolute Championship Berkut 91 will not take place in London as originally planned.
ACB announced on Monday morning that the event has been canceled due to “technical problems.” The card was scheduled to take place at Copper Box Arena on Aug. 11 and headlined by a middleweight clash between reigning ACB champion Albert Duraev and Piotr Strus.
In the originally scheduled co-main event, former UFC fighter Brad Pickett would have faced American bantamweight Jesse Brock. Pickett hung up his gloves after going on a three-bout skid in the Octagon, fallling to Iuri Alcantara, Urijah Faber and Marlon Vera in succession.
“All of the fights, that were announced for the card will be rescheduled for the closest ACB events,” read a statement on the promotion’s Facebook page. “All the money from ticket sales for this event will be returned in full to the buyers. ACB sincerely apologizes to fans for any inconvenience.”
