Injury forces Sergei Kharitonov to withdraw from Tony Lopez fight on May 26 in Stockholm   [View Full Version]

Hard-hitting heavyweight striker Sergei Kharitonov injured his neck and was forced to withdraw from his upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) fight against Tony Lopez at the "2012 Glory World Series" on May 26 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Golden Glory head coach Martijn de Jong recently confirmed the change on Twitter.

Kharitonov (18-5) was last seen disposing of Mark Miller under the United Glory banner earlier this year in Russia. It was a nice rebound win (under kickboxing rules) for the former paratrooper, who was bounced from the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix with a submission loss to Josh Barnett back in 2011.

Stepping in to take his place will be Swedish "Sledgehammer" Llir Latifi (5-2-1), who was previously booked to throw hands opposite Jeremy Horn until "Gumby" blew out his knee.

Dude's a classic gatekeeper.....tough as nails hard hitting decent everywhere and only involved in exciting fights. I want him to get the call to the UFC so he can check all the other HW strikers out there. Browne, Kongo, Struve, Barry etc....all would have problems.
