A change has been make to the upcoming UFC 131 card as Mac Danzig has been forced out of his fight with Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone due to injury.
Sources close to the bout confirmed Danzig’s injury to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.
Danzig apparently suffered a torn muscle during training that will sit him on the sidelines, and out of the fight against Cerrone in June.
There’s been no confirmation on the extent or the nature of the injury as of yet, and calls to Danzig were unreturned at the time of publication.
The search is now on for a replacement to step in and face Cerrone on the June 11 show.
Quite a few of the UFC’s lightweights are already booked for fights or are on the shelf with injury, but UFC matchmaker Joe Silva is usually quick to react and will likely find a replacement in the coming days.
MMAWeekly.com will have more information on Cerrone’s new opponent when it becomes available.
