Cody McKenzie's second attempt at a featherweight victory will have to wait a little bit longer.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned from sources close to the fighter that a training injury has forced McKenzie (13-3 MMA, 2-3 UFC) to withdraw from a planned UFC 155 bout with Leonard Garcia.

Shucks, I was feeling pretty good about my Garcia via 1st round knockout pick.

Shit, I really wanted to see Garcia win and McKenzie lose. Can't win 'em all. I just hope there is still a fight.

I say make it happen.

I mean there have been three events last two weeks.
Some featherweight would take this fight.

Anyone from nam phan rematch to maybe dustin Poirier to chad mendes.

Money is money. Who wouldn't want to make some more money with the possibility of a ufc bonus.

There are over 30 Ufc featherweights
Someone step up.

It amasses me how these guys are fighters but yet fights get cancelled when u have dozens of other fighters under contract to replace them and no one steps up

Same here. I'm sure the UFC will find a brawler to make things interesting.

Damn! IMO that was one of the easier matches to pick.

I think this idea is brilliant. I would like to see Siler get a rebound fight and I think his ground game should be more than enough to deal with Garcia. #PZNbitches
