Johnson injured, out of next Saturday’s UFC on FOX 5
Brendan Schaub was looking for a fight against Lavar Johnson. He got it, but now it’ll have to wait.
Johnson (17-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has been forced out of his heavyweight fight against Schaub (8-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) in just over a week. The two were scheduled to meet at UFC on FOX 5 on Dec. 8.
A pulled groin is to blame for taking Johnson out of the fight. UFC President Dana White late Thursday announced Johnson’s injury on Twitter.
Schaub took to social media, himself, to relay his disappointment in having the fight drop out just several days before he was to leave for Seattle, saying “Frustrated would be an understatement.”
