Sergei Kharitonov was discharged from a local Connecticut hospital last night after getting kicked in the groin by Matt Mitrione, which resulted in a no contest, sources told ESPN. However, he experienced more pain and discomfort this morning and was re-admitted to the hospital. ‪After another round of tests, the doctors determined he did not suffer from any interal bleeding. According to Bellator sources, he does have a hemorrhoid as a result of the kick and has been given topical and pain medication by doctors. He was discharged again moments ago.

Update on Cat Zingano and her injured eye: She told ESPN her doctor recently cleared her to train "lightly." No physical contact but she can finally break a sweat. She has a follow-up appointment on March 1. She will also be at the next CSAC hearing on March 19 to discuss how toe pokes should be handled in the future.‬ She is still hoping the UFC grants her a rematch against Megan Anderson.
