Chris Weidman has been forced to postpone his scheduled UFC middleweight title fight with Lyoto Machida due to a minor injury, officials announced Monday.
Weidman (11-0) was originlly expected to meet Vitor Belfort Memorial Day weekend, but Belfort was removed when the UFC and the Nevada Athletic Commission moved to ban TRT.
Machida (21-4), a former UFC light heavyweight champion who moved down to 185 pounds recently, was declared the No. 1 contender after besting Gegard Mousasi.
A new main event for UFC 173 is expected to be announced shortly.
