The injury bug has stung UFC 158.
Rory MacDonald has sustained an undisclosed injury and has been forced out of his UFC 158 bout with Carlos Condit, according to UFC officials on Monday.
In MacDonald’s place, Johny Hendricks will step in to fight Condit on the main card for the Montreal Pay-Per-View in March.
Hendricks was originally scheduled to face Jake Ellenberger on the welterweight-stacked fight card, but was pushed into the Condit fight with the MacDonald injury. A replacement opponent is currently being sought for Ellenberger.
GRACIEMAG.com will update with Ellenberger’s new opponent as more information becomes available.
