Brandon Thatch suffered a compound fracture of his toe and has been forced to withdraw from his Aug. 23 UFC Fight Night bout, the fighter announced on Saturday.
Thatch made the announcement through his Twitter account, including some graphic photos with the social media post.

The fighter added that he sustained the injury by kicking a teammate in the head, and will be sidelined four to six weeks.
Thatch was supposed to compete against Jordan Mein as part of the UFC’s upcoming visit to Tulsa, Okla., and the match was slated to be a main card fight. UFC officials have not announced a replacement for Thatch, and there has been no indication that Mein will remain on the card.
UFC Fight Night Tulsa is scheduled to be headlined by a lightweight bout between Benson Henderson and Rafael dos Anjos.
