First Shamrock, Now Tank Abbott out against Dan Severn at UR Fight
UFC Hall of Famer Dan Severn was supposed to initially fight Ken Shamrock this coming Sunday at UR Fight in Phoenix, Arizona.
Shamrock was recently suspended from competition by the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration due to a failed drug test stemming from his Bellator 149 headlining rematch against Royce Gracie.
After Shamrock’s suspension was announced, former UFC brawler Tank Abbott stepped up to fill the void.
Abbott could not pass his physical evaluation by doctors and has been removed from the fight against Severn by the Arizona Boxing and MMA Commission.
Now just two days out a replacement has yet to be announced.
UR Fight will feature a mix of boxing, pro wrestling, grappling, and MMA bouts and is hosted by Canadian digital television property UR Show.
Legendary pro wrestling commentator Jim Ross will serve as the evening’s commentator.
The main event will feature a boxing event with Roy Jones Jr., going up against a fan. If Vyron Phillips defeats Jones Jr., he will win $100,000
