Robertson out, Scanlon in vs Krauss at UFC 122

by Matt Erickson | source:

UFC newcomer Kenny Robertson has been forced out of his promotional debut against Pascal Krauss.

Robertson posted the news on his Facebook page on Tuesday, and sources close to the bout also confirmed the injury with MMA Fighting.

Robertson had been scheduled to meet Krauss, also a UFC newcomer, in a welterweight bout on the preliminary card of UFC 122 in Oberhausen, Germany, on Nov. 13. It is not yet known who will replace Robertson on the card. or if the fight will be scrapped entirely.

Robertson signed with the UFC last month, not long after submitting John Kolosci, a one-fight UFC veteran and Season 6 contestant on "The Ultimate Fighter," at Bellator 25 in Chicago. That win kept the wrestler unbeaten at 10-0 with all but one of his wins coming by stoppage.

Now comes word from German MMA site that undefeated British welterweight Mark Scanlon has replaced the injured Kenny Robertson

I sure hate to see this. Hopefully he heals up and gets his shot soon. The dude is a monster.
