Eric Garcia recently sent out the updated fight card for Cage Combat 6.
Things have changed a bit since last week when we first brought you the initial card.
The biggest change of note is that the 12 man featherweight tournament that was announced in our first post has been changed to be an 8 man tournament. Names that have been dropped from the tournament include Hector Silva, Servando Almaraz, Yan Digalov, Luis Gustavo and Andrew Musquiz.
The Silva vs Almaraz fight will still happen, just not as part of the tournament.Gustavo is now fighting Daniel Everitt (BVMMA), again not part of the tournament.
Musquiz announced on his Facebook page that he was having to retire from fighting for medical reason (of which could be life threatening). He did later say he was seeking a second opinion and is hopeful he will be able to fight again. We’re rooting for you Andrew!
