An unfortunate injury in training has waylaid Vuyisile Colossa’s next ONE FC appearance against Caros Fodor.

 

Colossa was scheduled to face Fodor in a rematch at ONE FC 20 in Cambodia on September 12, 2014, but sustained lateral collateral ligament, plica, and meniscus injuries while in the middle of the training camp for the bout. Colossa appeared at UFC FN 48 in Macau wearing a full leg brace and confirmed his injury to MMA-in-ASIA.

Colossa will need 6 to 8 weeks out of training and into rehab before he can resume his career. He previously announced a signing to UFC, but as he was still under contract with ONE FC that could not materialize. Colossa would not speculate on his future, given that the injury was recent.
