It appears as if Conor McGregor was onto something with his message about replacing Diego Sanchez at UFC 180 next month.

Norman Parke, the scheduled opponent for Sanchez, confirmed on Twitter that he will not make the card. The fighter suffered an injury to his MCL that will keep him out until 2015.

UFC president Dana White stated that McGregor would not be tabbed as an opponent for Sanchez. No word yet on who might replace Parke.
