Just a week away from the UFC on Versus 3 show in Louisville, KY and a fighter has been forced to pull out of the event. Cub Swanson fell victim to injury and was forced out of his scheduled bout against Erik Koch for the March 3 card.
Swanson and Koch were both making their UFC debuts after spending time in the WEC.
Koch appeared on MMAWeekly Radio Wednesday night after training with coach Duke Roufus, but the news about Swanson’s exit hadn’t hit the newswire yet.
It appears the UFC is on the lookout for a replacement to face Koch on short notice, and he is expected to remain on the card next week.
