Steve Cantwell Off UFC 120, Matchup with Stanislav Nedkov Scrapped

Steve Cantwell has been forced off tomorrow’s UFC 120 and his light heavyweight matchup with newcomer Stanislav Nedkov has been scrapped from the card after suffering a last-minute knee injury in training, Fighters Only reports.

The injury marks the latest setback for the former WEC champ Cantwell (7-3), who ended 2009 with back-to-back losses to Luiz Cane and Brian Stann before having his January return against Vladimir Matyushenk scrapped by a career-threatening medical issue.

Though he was eventually cleared to return, Cantwell was pulled from July’s UFC 116 and is now sidelined indefinitely with the torn knee ligament.

Nedkov will still be paid his show money for the canceled fight.
