Knothe Off Shark Fights 17 replaced by Doug Williams
Due to a miscommunication, Karl Knothe (19-6) will not fight former UFC HW Champion Ricco "Suave" Rodriguez (46-11) in tonight's Shark Fights 17 co-Main Event. Knothe claims that he was unaware of the 230-pound catchweight when he weighed in at 253.7 LBs. Knothe will be replaced by Doug Williams (5-12).
Williams was originally scheduled to fight Daniel Almeida.
