 Miletich Martial Arts fighter Rory Markham is out of his scheduled bout against Canadian fighter T.J. Grant due to injury. The two had planned to fight on The Ultimate Fighter Team U.S.A. vs. Team U.K. Finale at The Palms in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

:-(Rory wanted this fight bad, it's unfortunate that he is injured and can't compete on the 20th. He will be back soon enough.TBidness

Second straight opponent to pull out against TJ. That's shit luck if I ever saw it. This guy is willing to fight anyone and deserves a break.

I think that's largely due to the fact there are so many more events nowadays.

If Chris Wilson has his medical paperwork thing cleared up, then Joe Silva needs to get him on speed dial.

There seems to be an unusually high number of injuries to fighters scheduled for upcoming fights this year.
