Rodrigo Minotauro will no longer face Frank Mir as planned for UFC 119. Mirko Cro Cop will take the Brazilian’s place for the September 25 fight in Indiana, USA.
According to GRACIEMAG.com’s sources, the reason for pulling out is a hip injury. The injury happened while in Brazil. The fighter tried to carry on with training, as he has wanted another shot at Mir for some time, but ended up aggravating the injury and causing the black belt to definitively pull out of the dispute.
