Frankie Edgar Injured Out Of UFC 130 Main Event

As announced just moments ago by UFC president Dana White, UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar has been removed from the UFC 130 main event title fight against Gray Maynard.

The announcement comes via the media conference call currently taking place at this moment.

While little details were given, it appears as if both Edgar and Maynard have suffered training injuries and as a result the Rampage Jackson vs. Matt Hamill bout has been moved to the main event slot.

Edgar was forced to withdraw with a back and rib injury and Maynard with a Knee injury.

Dana White confirmed that both fighters will be out of action for 6-8 weeks and hopes to re-schedule the bout for August or September.

  • @Bastion Boogeyman Yeah because their injuries are fake. Mark Hominick didn’t really have a hematoma that looked like it was going to burst. MMA is the real deal kid, and it’s totally kicking pro wrestling’s ass right now. Those are real fighters who get real injuries almost in every fight. It’s not staged like wrestling is, though pro wrestlers do get injuries too. MMA fighters are real badasses.

  • Bastion Boogeyman

    Who cares. It’s fake.

  • That sucks! Their fight at Resolution was a Fight of the Year candidate. I’m pretty sure they were both determined to make their third fight outdo their first two. I wish both Edgar and Maynard a speedy recovery.
