With just three weeks until fight night, ProElite’s headlining bout has suffered a change.

In the scheduled main event, Tim Sylvia was expected to face off with fellow MMA veteran, Pedro Rizzo; however, Rizzo has been forced off the card with an Arm injury.

ProElite officials are actively seeking a replacement opponent and hope to keep Sylvia on the evening’s main card.

“So I would like to apologize to … ProElite and especially to Tim Sylvia because I can’t be in the ring on Nov. 5 to face him,” Rizzo stated.

ProElite II is set to go down November 5th from the iWireless Center in Moline Illinois. Five-time Champ Tim Sylvia was scheduled to Pedro Rizzo in the evening’s main event prior to a Rizzo injury and a featured bout between Andrei Arlovski and Travis Fulton will serve as the co-headliner.
