Fabio Maldonado’s opportunity to get his UFC career back on track has been sidelined.

UFC officials on Wednesday announced that Maldonado had to pull out of his scheduled UFC on Versus 6 bout with Aaron Rosa due to injury.

Maldonado (18-4) has gone 1-1 thus far in the Octagon, defeating James McSweeney in his UFC debut before losing to Kyle Kingsbury in June. A brown belt in jiu-jitsu and 22-0 as a professional boxer, Maldonado trains with the Nogueira brothers in Rio de Janeiro.

At the time of publication, there had been no announcement of a new opponent for Rosa.

    Too bad. Was looking forward to see Maldonaldo again. This guy has big time skills and toughness.

    Bummer, this is one guy you DO NOT want to get in the clinch with. Speedy recovery!

    Igor Pokrajac needs a fight. Winner gets Maldonado once Fabio gets healed…..Igor/Rosa loser may have to go fight somewhere else for a while.
