Darko Stosic Out of UFC Fight Night Prague Bout Against Magomed Ankalaev

By Tudor Leonte Jan 23, 2019
UFC light heavyweight Darko Stosic is out of his scheduled tilt at UFC Fight Night Prague.

The Serbian fighter should have faced the 26-year-old out of Dagestan, Magomed Ankalaev, who is now looking for a new opponent. The MMA Red Star representative posted the news on his social media on Tuesday morning.

The 26-year-old fighter from Belgrade revealed that he had some health problems during his training sessions regarding his pectoralis major. He tried his best to heal from the injury, but the only way to fully recover is to take a break from his training sessions. In the end, Stosic expressed a desire to meet Ankalaev in the future.

Stosic made his first UFC foray by stopping Jeremy Kimball via TKO in the first stanza of their UFC Fight Night 134 encounter on July 22. He is currently on a nine-bout winning streak in his 13-1 career.

UFC Fight Night 145 – also known as UFC on ESPN+ 3 – will go down on Feb. 23, at the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. The event is headlined by a light heavyweight showdown between Thiago Santos and Jan Blachowicz.

Zao mi je sto moram ovo da napisem ali moralo je i to valjda jednom da se desi,takav je posao. Na jednom od treninga pukao mi je grudni misic ( Pectoralis Major) Jednostavno se desilo,bio sam odlican sve je islo kako treba i se samo desilo u trenutku. Pokusao sam sve moguce nacine da to saniram,obisao 10 lekara. Ali niko ne moze nista specijalno da ucini. Od prvog dana sam krenuo 2 puta dnevno na terapije ali povreda sporo zarasta i jedini nacin da se to sanira jeste da mirujem i da se pomolim da ce normalno da zaraste ili da se operise. Misic je jos pun krvi iako su mi izvadili 4 puna sprica iz misica opet se napuni. Razmisljao sam dugo da li da se u ovakvom stanju borim bio sam siguran da ipak mogu. Ali jednostavno kad sam video koliko mi se krvi skuplja i da ne mogu tom rukom da udarim ni 50% a da ne pricam o sparingu. Jednostavno nema smisla da izlazilm na borbu a da ne mogu da dam 100%. Sve sam mozete videti i sami na slikama. Tako da borba protiv Ankalaeva za sad otpada,zao mi je zbog toga ali bice sigurno jos prilika da tu borbu odradimo! @rino.bet @mmamanagement #darkostosic #ufcworld #ufc #beograd #mmafighter #mmanews #mmalifestyle #mmarussia #mmatraining #ufcfightnight145 #ufcprague #ufcworld #kickboxing #k1 #boxing #bjj #combatsports #ufcfightnight #mma
