Yesterday, Frontkick reported that French MMA star will once again fight in front of his home fans as he takes on Derek Anderson at Accor Arena in Paris.

Now, however, Anderson is out of the fight as he suffered a gruesome bike accident.

“I’m more than devastated from what seems like some sort of Devine intervention but I will use my time recovering as best as I can and live in a bubble until I can get back in the cage,” Anderson wrote on Instagram.

Derek Anderson: “Hit and run”

At the moment, PFL has no new opponent for the French MMA star Doumbe, but the promotion is “actively seeking replacement” to face the French star in May.

“Love you all. Hit and run. I’m so sorry I couldn’t make this fight happen. You have no idea. I will not be getting another bike,” Anderson wrote.
