Matt Brown Injured, Out Of Kelvin Gastelum Fight

An injury to Matt Brown has scrapped the planned main event for The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America 2 Finale, reported Monday night.

Brown suffered an ankle injury in training that will keep him out of the welterweight bout vs. Gastelum. No word yet if the UFC will find a replacement to keep the former Ultimate Fighter winner on the November 21 card.

After defeating Tim Means, Brown (20-13) was looking to continue to re-ascent up the ladder. He had won seven in a row before dropping back-to-back decisions to Johny Hendricks and current champion Robbie Lawler.

Brown, along with his wife, and Gastelum had an exchange via social media over weight-cutting and the UFC’s decision to help Gastelum by hiring a nutritionist. Despite all that, both extended the olive branch.

Below is the current lineup:

Welterweight: Kelvin Gastelum vs. TBA

Flyweight: Henry Cejudo vs. Jussier Formiga

Featherweight: Diego Sanchez vs. Ricardo Lamas

Lightweight: Efrain Escudero vs. Leandro Silva

Bantamweight: Erik Perez vs. Damian Stasiak

Welterweight: Hector Urbina vs. Bartosz Fabinski

Lightweight: Michel Prazeres vs. Valmir Lazaro

Featherweight: Andre Fili vs. Gabriel Benitez
