Hope the event will get reseduled soon

It was a very decent card, and a major event in France, maybe the best since the legalisation of the sport here.

Artem Lobov, Fabio Maldonado, and Bigfoot Silva really are huge names in MMA, and the French fighters were talented too.
Marseille and all the south of France has a huge combat sports community, and I'm sure the event would have been a major success.

I leave very nearby, and I would love to be there in person whenever this will be resheduled.
