Hard-hitting featherweight Akira Corassani has suffered an injury and will be unable to compete against Jason Young as originally expected at UFC on Fuel 2.

The promotion recently issued a press release to members of the Swedish media, revealing that Young will meet a to-be-announced replacement at the April 14 event, which marks the UFC’s inaugural trip to Sweden.

Headlined by a light heavyweight confrontation between top Swedish prospect Alexander Gustafsson and former Pride Fighting Championships star Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, UFC on Fuel 2 takes place at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.

Karma for backing out of the MMA@Work interview at the last minute.

Who would want to lose their UFC debut on the first card held in their home country?

I would injure myself too!
