Blackledge out Maldonado in vs. McSweeney at UFC 120
Wolfslair product Tom Blackledge has been forced to pull out of his encounter with James McSweeney due to injury
“I don’t want to go into specific details of the injury, but suffice to say it is something that I was unable to work around, however much I tried,” Blackledge explains. “At the moment I don’t know what the recovery will be like but I just have to wait until I have a few more tests run”
Stepping into his place is heavy-handed Brazilian striker Fabio Maldonado (17-3-0), ensuring that there will still be a standup war at UFC 120 as former K1 fighter James McSweeney will look to make a splash at 205.
