Unfortunate news surfaced Saturday afternoon that light heavyweight title contender Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson had withdrawn from his ‘UFC on FOX: Chicago’ scrap against Glover Teixeira on July 23rd.
Ariel Helwani broke the news via Twitter, which didn’t give a reason for Johnson’s withdrawal. So far there has been no word yet on whether or not the UFC will look to find a replacement opponent for Teixeira, or if they will look to move the bout to a later date.
Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
