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.
