06:10 PM ET 12.17 | A kidney ailment has derailed the rematch between Alessio Sakara and Patrick Cote. Sakara will be out of action for the next three months. "I wanted this fight so badly, even if Montreal isn't the right city for the rematch to happen. However, that does not matter now. The fact is, I cannot fight because of my kidney," Sakara said. "Three days ago I got some test results and the doctor (Nephrologist; kidney specialist) has ordered that I stop everything for three months because of the renal (kidney) stress. Right now my manager is getting the date moved [for the rematch]. I'll be more motivated with the nutritionist to never again risk my health any more."
