The highly-anticipated Rory MacDonald vs. Carlos Condit rematch is off.

According to multiple sources close to the fight, MacDonald suffered an undisclosed injury in training recently, which has forced the young Canadian fighter to withdraw from his fight against Condit at UFC 158.

No opponent has been signed to replace MacDonald against Condit next month. As of now, he is still expected to compete on the card...

Maybe Woodley, or Tarec?

Erick Silva doesn't have a fight either, but I''m not sure they want to throw him to another wolf.

It was more likely GSP or Ricci.

Tarec sounds like a solid choice.

Don't feel bad since I'm not going to it.

A lot or replacement

Doubt they pull Jake or johnny to fight condit.

Plug in maia or Eric Silva
Or the chosen one.

I do think maia should step up take the fight
He beats condit he is right behind johnny in my eyes

Lame. He should be fighting for the title, not the guy who just lost to the champion.

I guess Tarec turned it down and Hendricks stepped up. I like that Hendricks is doing that, it's risky, but it shows he's a company man.

I love this. If Hendricks-condit has already been made though, perhaps Maia could step in against ellenberger. Having already handled Kim, story (who beat ellenberger outside the ufc) and fitch, maia has proven himself against wrestlers at 170. Ellenberger has lots of power though, and on less than a month, that is pretty short notice for such a tough fight.
