Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard Off UFC 130 After Injuries Sideline Both

Injuries have sidelined both Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard, forcing the cancellation of UFC 130's main event fight, MMA Fighting has learned.

UFC president Dana White confirmed to MMA Fighting that both fighters are out.

According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Edgar broke ribs, while Maynard suffered a knee injury.

The bout would have been the last of the trilogy. Maynard won the first bout in April 2008 in a unanimous decision. In January, the rematch ended in an all-time classic, with Maynard nearly knocking out the champion in the first round before Edgar rebounded and forced a five-round draw.

Maynard-Edgar III is likely to happen in the future, but there is no timetable yet for its scheduling.

With no replacement fight, Quinton Jackson vs. Matt Hamill will be promoted to the main event, while Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson is the co-main event.

The event takes place on May 28 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

This is BULLSH*T. I was PUMPED for this fight.

Rampage and Matt can not be the main event. Roy and Frank is more appealing to me. They have to find a better fight or this needes to be a free show on Spike.
