Rory Macdonald forced to withdraw from UFC 158 due to injury

Quote:
The highly-anticipated Rory MacDonald vs. Carlos Condit rematch is off.

According to multiple sources close to the fight, MacDonald suffered an undisclosed injury in training recently, which has forced the young Canadian fighter to withdraw from his fight against Condit at UFC 158.
No opponent has been signed to replace MacDonald against Condit next month. As of now, he is still expected to compete on the card.
MacDonald (14-1) most recently defeated B.J. Penn via unanimous decision at UFC on FOX 5 in December. He has won his last four fights in a row since losing his first MMA fight to Condit at UFC 115 in June 2010.
Condit (28-6) lost a UFC welterweight title unification bout to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 154 in November. The loss snapped his five-fight winning streak.



UFC 158, headlined by Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz, will take place March 16 at Bell Centre in Montreal.
Now that SUCKS!

Guess he remembered the first fight and decided it wasn't wise to take another beating in front of his countrymen at the hands of the Natural Born Killer.

And in b4 copter.

Damn this super blows, I love Condit. I was looking forward to this just as much, if not more than GSP/Diaz. I'd rather Hendricks/Ellenberger stay as-is (with Hendricks getting a title shot with a win). How about Condit vs. Maia? Although it is pretty short notice so I feel like it's never someone that good.

I've been thinking. I'm not sure how long of a career he'll have. That's the downside of starting early, ones body starts to deteriorate. Shogun is another good example.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Shields recently said he's keeping fit in case there's an injury to one of the WWs fighting on 158. He's a total jinx but give him the fight
