Oleynik says his fight at UFC in Russia may not take place
The next fight of MMA fighter Alexey Oleynik at the UFC tournament in Russia may be canceled. This was stated by the athlete himself. Earlier it became known that the American fighter Walt Harris failed a doping test. Harris was supposed to be an opponent to Oleynik at the tournament in St. Petersburg.
“USADA is not sleeping, my fight in April, which was supposed to take place in St. Petersburg, is under threat of failure due to the fact that my opponent failed a doping test,” said Oleynik. “The UFC is now looking for a replacement, but so far there have been no proposals. This is already the second opponent who has failed doping test. It's a shame, time goes by, I constantly train and work, and there are always some problems."
"I hope that in the end everything will be fine, and I will fight. I will also say that this guy fought in December, and with a high probability that his fight will be declared as a no contest," the fighter added.
