Fight Night 14 has had a round of changes leading up to its event in Lappeenranta, Finland this Saturday. Team East Front Jani Ridasmaa was supposed to face Kennet Mattsson, but he withdrew from the fight this week. Just last night, it is Sergei Grecicho to the rescue again to face Ridasmaa informs matchmaker Jukka Paananen to MMAViking.com.
The 30 fight veteran out of Lithuania is no stranger to Finnish MMA, recently coming to LFN 12 to face Antti Virtanen on short notice in April. He also faced Anton Kuivanen at Cage 29 back in February.
Aleksi Mäntykivi (8-3) is in the main event of the card, and the Team East Front fighter is on a roll after winning and stopping his last four opponents. The Finn will face Gregor Weibel (8-3) from Switzerland, a Cage Warriors veteran.
Two Sweden based fighters including Allstars Training Center’s Elmir Abasov and Mohammad Babadivand were not able to get travel permits for the bouts and have been scratched from the card.
