Last Saturday in Stockholm, Story edged out local favorite Nelson in the main event of the Fight Night card. Following the win, Story said he didn’t care who he faces next and explained that he was ready to fight. After today’s news, being ready will come later than expected. A timeline for Story’s recovery from the injury was not immediately revealed to MMAWeekly.com.
