The Los Angeles Anacondas have been dealt another blow in their bid to win the IFL Championship. 411mania.com is reporting welterweight Jay Hieron will not be able to compete in the semifinals on August 2 in East Rutherford, NJ against the Iowa Silverbacks due to an injury sustained while in training. Hieron had been expected to fight Rory Markham.
The Anacondas are already out of the services of lightweight Chris Horodecki, who will be unable to fight due to a hand injury.
Head coach Shawn Tompkins is expected to announce replacements for Horodecki and Hieron during a press conference on Wednesday.
