Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ injured, out of Feb. 14 main event
The UFC’s Feb. 14 Colorado card continues to get no love as it was dealt yet another headlining blow, Friday. Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson injured rib cartilage while training for his main event opponent, Brandon Thatch, and has been forced to pull out of the fight.
That Thompson vs. Thatch fight itself was a replacement for Matt Brown vs. Tarec Saffiedine, which was nixed after the former Strikeforce standout was injured, and Brown was subsequently moved to UFC 185 in a fight against former welterweight champ Johny Hendricks.
Now, the main event of the UFC’s soon-coming Colorado card is once again unknown. At time of publication, the co-main event is still set as Max Holloway taking on Cole Miller in a featherweight bout.
We will keep you posted on updates as they become available.
