The injury bug bit on the UFC in the butt today as Rory MacDonald is out of his UFC 158 matchup with Carlos Condit because of a neck injury. In the spot steps of MacDonald Johny Hendricks, and he’ll fight with Condit in the brand new occasion of this evening. The information was originally reported by MMAjunkie.com’s John Morgan. Together with the switcheroo — that is extremely disappointing to all seeing like Condit vs. MacDonald was an early favorite to win”Fight of the Night” — Jake Ellenberger, that had been set to fight Hendricks, is abandoned with no opponent, although it’s rumored Tyron Woodley could choose the fight on short notice. Anticipate the MMA odds for Hendricks vs. Condit to be somewhat competitive, although Hendricks will likely be a tiny favorite as a result of his wrestling advantage. Jansen vs. Held Postponed Again An injury to Marcin Held has again forced the postponement of his Bellator Season 7 Lightweight Tournament Final against Dave Jansen for the next time, according to a report from MMAjunkie.com. The lightweights were set to meet at Bellator 84 however, the Indian Athletic Commission would not allow to go into the match and the fight was embarrassingly scratched at the last moment. Now the rain date, that was set to take place at the forthcoming Bellator 92 event, was rearranged as well, and the two will meet at Bellator 93.
