The following is an excerpt from an article on Sherdog.com:

HONOLULU, Dec. 10, 2007 — The ICON Sport middleweight title fight between champion Robbie Lawler and challenger Kala Kolohe Hose was once again put on hold after Lawler suffered a torn bicep in training. Now the entire Dec. 15 ICON event has been postponed.

“There is no good news,” said ICON Sport President T.Jay Thompson at a news conference Monday at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center. For “days, Patrick (Freitas) and I, while sick to our stomachs, have tried awful hard to make the best decision both for our fans, for our local fighters and for the fighters that have trained hard and planned on coming in here. In the end, there was not a suitable replacement for Robbie Lawler. Kala deserves a fight with Robbie Lawler, deserves a shot at the ICON title, doesn't deserve to fight in ICON against anybody other than Robbie Lawler at this point.”

“What can you say,” said a disappointed Lawler. “I was training hard.”

This marks the third time a Lawler-Hose title match has been postponed this year.
