Injuries Force Two Out Of ‘Just Scrap Maui IV’: Gonzalves & Koulthsen Fill Void | MMA NEWS
In an unfortunate turn of events, two combatants have been forced off the card due to injury and replaced with new fighters.
Riquo Abadilla, who was originally scheduled to face off with Gerald Castaneto for the ‘Just Scrap’135lb title has been replaced by the always tough Donald Gonzalves.
In female action, ‘Just Scrap’ officials were forced to seek out a new opponent for Tiani Valle, who was originally scheduled to fight Lena Cook. Cook has now been replaced by Sivada Koulthsen.
The promotion last touched down in Maui with “Just Scrap Maui III” which featured a main event between local fan favorite, Kendall Grove and Chris Cisneros on November 9.
In the bout, Grove was able to secure a second round TKO victory over Cisneros to earn a much-needed win in front of his hometown crowd.
“It’s time we returned to Maui”, said Just Scrap President JD Penn. “We plan on continuing to bring high level MMA action to the fans and the fights we have booked for this card will deliver again.”
