An injury to James Krause has scrapped plans for the fighter to meet Ross Pearson next month.
The two were set to square off at UFC Fight Night 99 from Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Krause confirmed the injury on social media:
It’s with great disappointment and frustration that I make this post announcing that I’m forced to withdraw from my #UFCBelfast bout with Ross Pearson… again.
Monday morning during wrestling practice I tore my hamstring for what the doctor says is a “high grade”, substantial tear in 3 different spots to my hamstring.
This is 2 camps in a row, and against Ross that I’ve had to withdraw from so my greatest apologies to him. This is not my norm and I pride myself on fighting any opposition that’s been offered to me. That being said during these training camps I’ve made a lot of progress and am very excited to show my improvements whoever and whenever that time comes.
Once again, my deepest apologies to Ross “The Real Deal” Pearson, I wish nothing but the best of luck in your upcoming fight.
To everyone else that supports me… I’ll be back soon enough.
