Welterweight knockout artist Adlan Amagov has been forced out of
his upcoming bout at UFC Fight Night in Atlanta against Jason High
following an injury suffered in training.
Sources close to the fight confirmed Amagov’s withdraw to FOX
Sports on Tuesday after an initial report from Russian site MMABoxing.ru surfaced this
Amagov was entering the card on a three fight win streak, the
most recent of which was a devastating knockout over T.J.
Waldburger at UFC 166 in Houston.
Training out of Greg Jackson’s gym in New Mexico, Amagov has
become one of the most talked about prospects brought over after
Strikeforce folded earlier in the year, but his next bout will have
to wait until another date in 2014.
The nature of his injury or how long Amagov will be sidelined is
unknown at this time.
UFC officials have yet to announced a change to the fight so
it’s likely matchmaker Joe Silva is still searching for a
replacement to face High on the upcoming January card.
