Yet another injury has been officially announced, and yet another fighter has been shelved.
Mike Brown (25-8 MMA, 1-3 UFC) has been scratched from his upcoming bout against Vagner Rocha at the UFC’s debut on FX. This would have been a featherweight bout on the main portion of the card.
Brown was last seen back in August at UFC 133 where he got a easy unanimous decision win over Nam Phan. He would have been looking to build off the momentum of that win, but this injury will slow that down significantly.
Details about the injury have not been disclosed to any media sources.The UFC has yet to announce a replacement for Brown.
UFC on FX 1 takes place Jan. 20th at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.
