It would\u2019ve been really dope \u2013 it would\u2019ve been a great fight. Obviously, it was not intentional \u2013 the worst possible situation. \u201c\u2026 Sergei: I\u2019m genuinely sorry. I\u2019m apologetic as I could possibly be.\u201d \u201cIf Sergei is down to go, if he can do it, if his body\u2019s good \u2013 hopefully he didn\u2019t rupture a (testicle) \u2013 but if he can do it again, then obviously I\u2019m 100 percent down,\u201d Mitrione said. \u201cHe\u2019s the only person I really want to fight in this situation because everybody, I think, deserves that. It would\u2019ve been a great fight and a lot of fun. It just sucks, man.\u201d We wish Sergei Kharitonov a speedy recovery.
