Pretty big bummer coming up for UFC fans as Matt Brown has apparently been forced to pull out of his upcoming fight with Carlos Condit from UFC on Fox 9. According to a Tweet that Brown send out earlier today he herniated two discs in his lower back and will be unable to compete at the upcoming UFC on Fox 9 event, which is a huge blow for Matt Brown, who was knocking on the door to title contention. A win over Carlos Condit would have been huge for Matt Brown, instead he has to focus now on healing up and getting back into training.
The talk is that Carlos Condit will be moved to another card, possibly UFC 170, but nothing seems final as of yet. We wish Matt Brown a speedy recovery.
Thanks for the support guys. I regret to inform all that I am out of the fight with Condit. I herniated 2 discs in my lower back this week.
