Maldonado Out Of UFC On Versus 6 Bout With Rosa Due To Injury
The injury bug strikes once again.
This time it’s UFC on Versus 6 undercard fighter, Fabio Maldonado, who has been forced out of his light-heavyweight matchup with Aaron Rosa due to an undisclosed injury.
UFC officials announced the change earlier this afternoon via twitter.
The show which features a bantamweight title fight between champion, Dominick Cruz and challenger, Demetrious Johnson is set to take place on Oct. 1 from the Verizon Center in our nation’s capitol of Washington D.C.
A Strikeforce, Bellator and EliteXC veteran, Rosa made his octagon debut this past June. The 28-year-old Texan went toe-to-toe with an always-tough Joey Beltran and ultimately succumbed to a third-round TKO. The loss snapped a four-fight win streak.
He now waits for an opponent to fill the void left by Maldonado.
The latest UFC on Versus 6 card now includes:
