Former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum was scheduled to fight Ben Rothwell at UFC 203 in Cleveland, Ohio.

However, Werdum will need a new opponent now that Rothwell has suffered a knee injury and has been forced to withdraw from the bout, according to sources confirmed by MMA Junkie on Thursday.

A member from Rothwell’s team stated that “Big Ben” might have a torn meniscus and may need an ACL injury.
