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.
Yes folks I am out of my contest with Diego, I have MCL injury but I wish to be back competing January. UFC182 would be great @ufc@UFC_UK

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