The injury plague of 2012 seems to be reigning terror on the UFC with Brian Stann being the latest fighter to drop out of a fight.
Sources close to the fighter confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Stann has been forced out of his UFC on Fox 4 bout against Hector Lombard.
Stann was set to headline the UFC on Fox 4 card, and now UFC matchmaker Joe Silva has his work cut out for him to find a replacement with very few names left in the hat to pull from.
Hector Lombard will be making his UFC debut after his run as Bellator middleweight champion over the last couple of years.
Now it looks like he’ll be facing a new opponent as Stann will be forced out of the fight as he waits to recover from the injury suffered in training.
MMAWeekly.com will have more information on Stann’s replacement when it becomes available.
