The hits keep on rolling, as we quickly approach It's Showtime's May 14th card and their May 21st card there have been a few notable changes, as we just reported, Anderson Silva had to pull out of his bout with Daniel Ghita for the 14th. We have more bad news for It's Showtime fans, as many will remember, Hesdy Gerges has found himself in some legal trouble of late, and has now been extradited to Belgium to be interrogated about his possible involvement with cocaine trafficking.
The bad news is that It's Showtime no longer believes that Gerges will be able to participate on their May 21 card. They have removed him from the official card line up on their website, and Simon Rutz confirmed on his Facebook account in response to a fan that Gerges is out for the time being. This leaves It's Showtime without their main event for the card, but Robin Van Roosmalen vs. Mohamed Khamal is a great bout that could easily fill in for the absence of Hesdy Gerges on the card.
We'll keep you updated on any further updates for It's Showtime's May 14th and May 21st cards and who will fill in what spot. Hopefully they find an opponent for Chris Knowles.
