TheCageDoor.net has learned that the Jason David Frank vs Shawn Machado fights is all but off of the July 22 Legacy blockbuster card.
Word came down that Frank suffered a possible bicep tear and could be out of action over the next several months. His teammate, Patrick Hutton, suffered the same injury in his bout against Patrick Bierschwhale at Legacy FC 6 in April of this year..
Mick Maynard of Legacy confirmed the news and said that they are waiting to hear back from the doctor on the results. If things go well, the fight could be post-poned until September.
Despite losing this fight, Legacy FC 7 is still one of the best fight cards the bayou city has ever seen, with no less than 7 fights all having main card potential and three of those that could be a main event on most nights.
