'Mo' not so mighty, withdraws from DREAM 6

Siala "Mighty Mo" Siligia (3-0) has withdrawn from DREAM 6 due to an injury suffered in training. His opponent, Russian gladiator Sergei Kharitonov (15-3) is expected to get a last-minute replacement for Tuesday's event.

Punch Drunk Gamer is reporting that replacement could be Jimmy "The Titan" Ambriz (13-9-1).

Siligia was last victorious at K-1 Heroes after a first-round mutilation of Ruben "Warpath" Villereal. An accomplished kickboxer with a devastating overhand right that he calls "The Right Hand of God", Mo was expected to bring not only flair, but a very tough challenge for "Kharit-top".

Ever the gamer, UFC jetsam Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic offered to fight Kharitonov after disposing of Overeem - a comment that led to some amusing banter between the three:

Cro Cop: "As a professional fighter, I'm willing to fight Kharitonov after fighting Allister. I'm sure Kharitonov doesn't want to go home without fighting. I'm happy to be his opponent."
Overeem: "I suppose our fight is your last fight as a professional MMA fighter, Mirko. "
Cro Cop: "I like fighting someone who has plenty of guts, and I admit Alistair is one of them; although, our fight won't be my last fight for sure."
Kharitonov: "I respect both Mirko and Alistair. I'm sure it's a big decision fighting twice a day. I am appreciative of Mirko, yet I would like to fight you in another time."

Thanks to the lovely Suki MMA for the translation.
