UFC Sao Paulo took another hit.
Two days after Augusto Mendes was forced out of the card with a leg injury, the event lost Luan Chagas, as the Brazilian welterweight announced on his social media that he can’t compete with Niko Pride on Oct. 28 due to a broken foot.
“Hello everyone, I have news for you, Chagas posted on his Instagram page. “Unfortunately my fight in October 28 in UFC Sao Paulo will not happen. I had a fracture in my foot during the camp and my surgery already for next week. I got really upset, but this is MMA. This things happen all the time. I hope as soon as I get recovery we could fight @Nikoatt. I really want to fight against you and I know that everybody wants to watch it. Enjoy your next fight and soon as possible I will be back to settle this up.”
UFC Fight Night 119 will be headlined by Derek Brunson vs. Lyoto Machida.
