Don Frye (pictured) has withdrawn from a matchup against Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal which was to headline M-1 Global’s August 28 “Breakthrough” event after the card was recently moved from Los Angeles to Kansas City.
Lawal announced Frye’s withdrawal and the location change in a recent video blog on YouTube.
“Don Frye pulled out because he didn’t like the location of the fight,” said Lawal. “It was originally supposed to be in Los Angeles, but I guess they moved it to Kansas City or something. I’m trying to still get that payday, so they’re going to find a replacement to take his spot.”
A new venue has not yet been announced for the HDNet-televised event and an opponent is currently being sought to take on Lawal in the evening’s main event.
