If you were excited to watch Stipe Miocic and Ben Rothwell throw down on October 24th, well, yes, we have some bad news.
The UFC has announced that less than two weeks out, Miocic has withdrawn from UFC FN 76 due to injury. No details as to the nature or severity of Miocic’s injury were included.
Miocic did announce on Twitter, however, that he’s unable to put his socks on…so that might give you an idea.
The UFC is looking for a replacement opponent for Rothwell, although at this late stage, it could be tough. Mr. Rothwell has won three straight fights and is currently ranked #7. Miocic is ranked #3.
UFC FN 76 will take place in Dublin, and in the main event, rising Irish star Joe Duffy will take on ATT lightweight Dustin Poirier.
