The rematch has already failed twice, will we see it a third time? The last time it was health problems of both fighters, but now it looks like Patrik Kincl and Karlos Vémola are healthy less than three weeks before the fight.
The most anticipated rematch of the Czech MMA scene was ruined by the fighters’ health last time
Fans are less than three weeks away from the most anticipated rematch on the Czech MMA scene. After more than four years, Prague’s O2 arena will see a rematch of the 2018 fight that divided the fan community and the former friendship of the two main protagonists.
Vémola dominated the first fight back in the XFN organization, although he struggled especially in the last round. The rematch was settled a few months after the first fight, however, Terminator then moved to the rival Octagon and Kincl eventually went abroad after the end of XFN due to financial difficulties.
Last year, however, the two fighters crossed paths again in the same organization and now it’s time for the coveted rematch. It was supposed to take place at the end of last year, but the duel was ruined by the health condition of Karlos Vemola and eventually Patrik Kincl withdrew from the fight due to injury.
Patrik Kincl and Karlos Vémola reveal their health status three weeks before the fight
The rematch has already failed twice, so fans are rightly worried about another injury. Both fighters also commented on this topic on yesterday’s Prima CNN News. Here they revealed their health status ahead of their fight.
“Excellent, even better than excellent,” Kincl replied to the host’s question how he feels after his injury from the turn of the year. “Physically fine. My arm is even faster and stronger than it was before. So I’m looking forward to getting it out in May.”
“I don’t know any athlete who has played all the matches in his career without getting injured, unfortunately it happened to me,” Vémola said of the cancellation of the December rematch. “My body will never hold up and function 100 percent because I have high mileage.”
“But my team of doctors, physiotherapists are working on it so much that I’m sure I’ll come to the O2 Arena at this age in better shape than I did in the last fight. And I think Patrik Kincl will be too, so the fans have something to look forward to,” Karlos entices the fans. Everything is pointing to the fact that the longed-for rematch will finally happen after almost five years.
