Gökhan Saki cancelt gevecht in Las Vegas

Nov 30, 2017 Het geplande gevecht van Gökhan Saki tegen Khalil Rountree op UFC 219 in Las Vegas eind december gaat niet door.

Saki is geblesseerd aan zijn knie. Volgens coach Martijn de Jong gaat het herstel een paar maanden duren.

Het zou voor de 33-jarige lichtzwaargewicht zijn tweede partij in de UFC worden. Bij zijn eerste partij in Saitama, Japan won Saki van Henrique Da Silva.

De plaats van Saki wordt overgenomen door Michal Oleksiejczuk.

As has been announced everywhere, i’m not fighting on the UFC 219 card. I wanted to announce this myself but i needed some time to recover mentally from this bad news. I got injured during a training and went to the hospital for this. My team and management took the decision with the medical team that i needed treatment and i have to think of my health first. I didn’t want to accept this but i’m glad i have the right people around me. It felt like i let my fans and supporters down, i was really looking forward to this fight. So the bad news was a bitter pil to swallow. But this is top sports and injuries are unfortunately a part of it. I’m recovering now and will be back in training soon. I want to thank my opponent Khalil for preparing for me and i wish him best of luck on December 30th. I want to thank all my fans/supporters for their great messages and i promise you 2018 i will give you KNOCK-OUTS! One knee, no knee, i will be there violently!!!
