According to a report, Matt Mitrione has been forced off the UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga card with an injury. He was scheduled to meet Brendan Schaub.
The bout will be re-scheduled for a later date.
Mitrione (6-2) suffered an injury in training. He rebounded from a pair of losses to defeat Philip De Fries earlier this year.
Schaub (9-3) also snapped his recent losing streak with a decision victory over Lavar Johnson.
“Seattle love your coffee but being scheduled to fight there not so much. I’m officially off the UFC on Fox 8 card. Mitrione is out w/injury,” Schaub wrote on Twitter. “Frustrated….back to the gym.”
