LOS ANGELES – A major cut suffered in training that required several stitches will keep Rory MacDonald from a highly anticipated welterweight fight against B.J. Penn at UFC 152 next month.

UFC President Dana White on Saturday told MMAjunkie.com of the injury following Saturday's post-event news conference for UFC on FOX 4, which took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

MacDonald (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Penn (16-8-2 MMA, 12-7-2 UFC) had been booked for the main card of UFC 152, which is set for Sept. 22 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

I didn't think this fight was actually going to happen when these two first start getting into it and now it's really not.

That's alright though, because I wasn't that into it.

Damn, I was hoping to see a picture of the cut, lol.

edit-
ah, I found it. Not so bad (Visually, I mean. Obviously bad enough that you can't train with it.)

Pictures of Rory's cut

Shitty deal, I was gonna attend this event, but will pass with this latest development ....... are they gonna scrap this one or find a late replacement? This one will likely be rescheduled.
