Gunnar Nelson is injured and out of UFC Liverpool against Neil Magny


DahFjFRX0AEtSGI

Gunnar Nelson released the news him self today, (rather than all the ‘hear say stories), that due to injuring his knee during practise last week, for which he will have to undergo surgery on, he has and rightly so pulled out of the co-main event at UFC Liverpool.

Nelson said “I’m sorry to my family, my opponent, my teammates, the fans and the UFC.

“This is a huge blow to me and I’m at a loss for words to describe the disappointment I am feeling. I was really feeling up for this fight, the training camp was going great and everything was just perfect until this happened. When all is said and done this is the fight business and injuries are sometimes an unfortunate part of it given the physical rigors us athletes put our bodies through. I will keep on evolving as a fighter while I’m on the sidelines and I’ll be back as soon as I can”. – we here at fiveroundswithemma, wish Gunnar a speedy recovery.

There is speculation that Neil Magny will still be on the card and a new opponent is being sought after as I type this statement.

Stay tuned to see who his opponent will be for the co-main event in UFC Liverpool on Sunday May 27th.

UFC Fight Night Manila Results: Frankie Edgar Has the ‘Answer’ & defeats Urijah Faber

For everything that a fight should be and a fighter, competitor for whom has always carried himself with such grace, Mark Munoz closed his fighting career on a clear, winning, dominant performance over the UK’s Luke Barnatt in what can only be defined as ‘OUTSTANDING’.


The UFC came live from Manila today, where it certainly did not disappoint and had a very emotional farewell to one of the sports most beloved fighters after winning his retirement fight.

In the main event Frankie Edgar literally answered everyone’s ‘answers’ in which he won every single round on the judges scorecards to clearly win over a tough opponent in ‘The california Kid’ Urijah Faber.

The co-main event went as much predicted (in my opinion) ,again, the judges scored every single round to Gegard Mousasi, for which he was tasked with the not so easy Costas Philippou.
