UFC Brooklyn loses two fighters to injury with just a week away from fight night

Drake Riggs - January 10, 2019

It’s been a bit of a rough journey to get to the UFC’s very first show on ESPN programming. First, there was the trouble finding the main event which resulted in the UFC pulling UFC 233’s main event to put it on UFC Brooklyn (the first show on ESPN+). This led to the cancelation of UFC 233 entirely.

The stacked UFC 233 card that will kick off the UFC’s 2019 pay-per-view cards has been forced to share the love as a highly anticipated bout has been moved to an earlier date. On January 26 at the Anaheim, California event, the former KSW champion and consensus top 10 worldwide flyweight, “The Violence Queen” Ariane Lipski (11-3) was set to make her long-awaited debut against the always entertaining and resurgent Joanne “JoJo” Calderwood (12-3).
