For the whole week there's been rumors of Sergei Lascenko replacing Alexey Ignashov, starting off with Thom Harinck stating that he was headed to Romania for Lascenko to fight Benjamin Adegbuyi. Ignashov was scheduled to fight Adegbuyi though, so a lot of confusion arose.
Today, albeit very close to the event, it's finally been confirmed that Lascenko will replace Ignashov. Ignashov was injured coming into this fight and was trying to hold out until the very last minute in order to recover and be ready for the fight but ultimately, he can't fight due to his injury. Sergei Lascenko will step in to fight Benjamin Adegbuyi in what is one of the four Final Elimination fights.
Interestingly enough, Lascenko was originally scheduled to fight Ismael Londt in one of the other Final Elimination fights, but pulled out of that fight because he hadn't recovered from his fight against Hesdy Gerges at the K-1 Final 16 last month.
SuperKombat Final Elimination is today and is live on Eurosport at 21:00 CET in Europe, which translates to 3PM ET/12PM PT in North America. We'll have live results as they happen. Here's the full fight card:
