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.

As a result, according to other sources, Condit will now face Johny Hendricks at UFC 158. Hendricks was supposed to fight Jake Ellenberger on the same card. A new opponent has not been signed for Ellenberger.

I bet Zuffa are hopeing Hendricks loses so they can say there are no clear #1 contender, paving the way for their GSP/Silva superfight.I guarantee they wont announce Silva/Weidman until the Condit/Johny fight is over with for that very reason.

I think you hit nail on the head there mate. It could be a win/win situation for the UFC now, aslong as no more injuries occur.

I think that Hendricks tries for the haymaker but Condit is way too slick on his feet and hurts Hendricks who then takes Condit down ...then Condit subs him...Condit in 2....

to me this is logical matchmaking...dont see the issues alot of people discussing, nothing is perfect..its about alternatives and looking at binomial tree..previoushendricks ellencondit rory4 outcomeshend and cond win. hend shothend and rory win. hend shotellen and cond win. no one obviousellen and rory win. no one obviousother contenders: maianew match:hend conditellen v ???maia or woodley4 outcomes:hend and ellen win. hend shothend and ?? win. hend shotcond and ellen win. no one obviouscond and ? win. no one obviousso unless u think ellen could of title shot with win over hendricks before (ge got kod by kamp 2 fights ago so no) situation doesnt change much. if ur zuffa u dont want to put gsp v non clear contender and low marketable ko merchants such as ellen so if hend doesnt win they dont wanna use ellen. more likely use maia v gsp which better stylistically for gsp as less chance of flash ko. nothing really changes. if hendricks doesnt win theres no clear contender. this bottom line. same as before and now
