News has got out that Yodsanklai Fairtex is injured and unable to fight against Yohan Lidon on September 2nd at the MuayThai Premiere League's debut event. Yodsanklai went into his last fight against Yasuhito Shirasu with an injured hamstring and aggravated it in the loss. The rematch against Yohan Lidon is scrapped for the time being. It's been confirmed that the event will be re-scheduled for the next time the MPL heads to California.

Read the full news release from Muay Thai Authority below:

Muay Thai Authority has confirmed with Muaythai Premier League president Clifton Brown that Yodsanklai will no longer be fighting on the Muaythai Premier League's September 2nd event, "Stars and Stripes." Yodsanklai entered his last fight against Yasuhito Shirasu with a hamstring injury and further aggravated it in the loss to Shirasu.

The injury has slowed Yodsanklai down significantly in training and forced him to withdraw from his fight with Yohan Lidon. Muay Thai Authority has confirmed that the entire bout has been scrapped, but will be re-scheduled for the next event the MPL will hold in California.

Yodsanklai, however, is making the trip to America and will be in attendance on September 2nd as well as for the press conference, currently scheduled for Wednesday, August 31st. Fans will still have a chance to meet Yodsanklai as he will be accessible to them at the event.

Brown provided Muay Thai Authority with official letters from Fairtex and Yodsanklai's doctor. Dated August 24th, the doctor's letter was sent to Brown and the MPL verifying that Yodsnaklai has an "R/O hamstring LP leg and polipteal tendon injury on his left leg and has been advised from causing any physical strain on the injury for a minimum period of 3 weeks." In the letter from Faritex, Yodsanklai's manager states "Yodsanklai will travel to Los Angeles to show his support for the league and to apologize."

The news is a big blow to the MPL's debut, but the card is still very strong with the likes of Buakaw Por. Pramuk and Nathan Corbett among other notables.
