MTDAR Suspends Kerr Indefinitely

Sherdog is reporting that the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation has placed Mark Kerr on indefinite suspension after the once dominant heavyweight failed pre-fight medical tests leading up to the Global Fighting Championships first ever event.

MTDAR Director Michael Mazzulli did not disclose the specifics behind Kerr's suspension, but Ken Pavia, who represents Kerr, has indicated that high blood pressure was the culprit.

GFC 1 was scheduled to take place at the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort in Uncasville, CT, but four of the eight scheduled matches were disqualified for medical reasons, and the event was called off altogether.
