Props: Fighters Only

Alexandre Ferreira has pulled out of his March 3rd fight with fellow Brazilian Roushimar Palhares. He is in no condition to train after losing friends and family in the recent floods that have devastated Brazil. Ferreira has also been released from Chute Boxe today by the founder Rudimar Fedrigo. The reasoning behind his release was lack of commitment, heres what Rudmiar Fedrigo had to say:(Just to be clear, his release has nothing to do with him pulling out of fight or the recent floods)

"It was his disinterest for the team and lack of commitment. He made clear that he wants to follow the career with his own path and accordingly, I cannot get to talk to him for days at a time. He will hear from the release on the Internet. Maybe what happens is that the fighter couldn’t adapt himself. Sometimes a person doesn’t get used to the locality - perhaps he wasn’t feeling as well as he would like."

No news on who would be Palhares replacement, or if the bout will be scrapped. Any ideas on who should fill in for Ferreira, and fight Palhares? Maybe  Alessio Sakara? I believe he was supposed to fight Falcao on this card, but Falcao pulled out.
