By Kevin Johnston - According to Dan Rafael via Twitter, the Joseph Agbeko-Abner Mares fight has been cancelled. Agbeko apparently collapsed on Monday night due to lower body pain/nerve issues, and soon thereafter was diagnosed with sciatica.

There has been no official word yet about a potential replacement for Agbeko, but rumor has it that Eric Morel is on the short list. It appears that Perez-Darchinyan will proceed as planned while a possible last minute replacement could step in to fight Mares in a non-title fight. Stay tuned for more details because at this point everything is pure speculation.
