Damn you, injury bug!
UFC on FOX 8, which is scheduled to take place on July 27 at Seattle’s Key Arena (if there’s anyone left), has recently been hit with a rash of injuries that have forced the fight card to change.
Matt Mitrione has sustained an undisclosed injury and is forced out of his fight with Brendan Schaub. The fight, according to an announcement made by the UFC, will take place at a later date and venue. They didn’t say, however, when and where that will be. Bummer.
Also, what would’ve been a sure thing in the someone-will-get-punched-really-hard department, Siyar Bahadurzada is hurt and had to be pulled from his fight with Robbie Lawler. In his place, Bobby Voelker will fight Lawler (we still think someone will get punched, though).
And then there’s Bobby Green. Yup, he’s hurt, too. As a result, Danny Castillo will now fight Tim Means.
But we’re not done!
Spencer Fisher is hurt, according to the UFC Twitter account. His old opponent, Yves Edwards, now faces Daron Cruickshank.
Ok, I think we’re done with the unfortunate injury report for now. But there’s over two weeks left until this card, so cross your fingers.
