As you probably heard, Gordon Ryan and Craig Jones had to pull out of WNO this week after contracting COVID-19. Losing two of the sports biggest stars would usually be the kiss of death for an event, but we were able to bounce back and find two very solid replacements at the last minute.
Garry Tonon vs Dante Leon has moved from co-main to main event, one of the advantages of having three main event matches on the same card. We announced yesterday that ADCC silver medalist Vagner Rocha is stepping in to face Ronaldo Junior. Now we were left only to find a replacement for Hulk, and what a replacement it is:
Always Ready: Cyborg Steps In
Coming in on 48 hours' notice, Roberto "Cyborg" Abreu is stepping in to face Lucas Barbosa! The two men have had two wars already before, with Cyborg coming out on top both times. Cyborg is undefeated in 2020 and recently won the 3CG Kumite.
This match will take place under F2W rules and is 15 minutes long. It slides in as the new co-main event, after Ronaldo vs Vagner and before Garry vs Dante.
