We were following Roger struggle to be part of the event for a while... The current superfight champion got mumps recently. The disease complicated and went down (if you know what I mean).

He fought against that, and after a couple of weeks of a compulsory rest tried to get back training anyways, but unfortunately twisted his knee badly in a way he won’t be able to heal in time for the event.

ADCC officials are now considering other replacements.

Mumps is serious business, especially if they go down. This sucks, but I hope it isn't too serious and he gets well soon.

I didn't know it was happening but now I'm highly upset it isn't.

Mumps should never be treated lightly, My uncle was a Soldier and all round fitness guru. After a bout of the mumps he then suffered Glandular fever, and culminated in ME> He's been slowly losing control of his right side ever since, its a very scary and relatively unknown (popularly) disease.

 Mumps with testicular involvement is said to be *really* painful.

(as if any disease process that attacked your balls would feel *nice*)

Vinicius Magalhaes is the logical replacement, he already has a winning record vs. Drysdale

deserves the shot at a good payday
