Anicet Steps In For Calvert
Iakabidze vs. Anicet, 11 December
28 November 2014
Johannesburg (South Africa) - There are only two weeks until the final EFC event of the year takes place at the Coca-Cola Dome on 11 December. The EFC veteran Ashley Calvert has had to withdraw from what was supposed to be his fateful return to the Hexagon.
It was discovered in training that Calvert had an abscess on his elbow that had burst. His status has been monitored closely by specialists. This has forced Calvert to withdraw from his EFC 36 bout against Koba Iakabidze.
Fortunately, Kanyeba Anicet has stepped up on the short notice to face the Georgian native. Anicet has been out of action since his KO loss against Hanru Botha, but has been eager to get back into the mix and jumped at the opportunity.
EFC wishes Ashley Calvert a speedy recovery and hope to see him in the Hexagon soon.
