First, it was Jose Aldo pulling out of his UFC featherweight title defense match versus Chad Mendes at UFC 176, which would’ve been a rematch for the ages on a card that was looking solid.
Then, it was John Dodson tearing his ACL as most people, including yours truly, were looking forward to his rematch with flyweight champion John Dodson.
Now, it’s Khabib Nurmagomedev.
Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone knocked out Jim Miller in the second round of their fight on Wednesday night. Riding a three fight winning streak in 2014 alone, Cerrone’s momentum justifies a number one contender fight with Khabib.
Today, the two men signed a contract to schedule the fight to be on the UFC 178 card, but unfortunately, just 20 minutes after the fight contract was inked, Khabib blew out his knee. You can’t make this stuff up.
These injuries are really piling up. Sad to see. A couple of cards have been derailed because of them.
