Jim Wallhead has suffered an undisclosed injury and he has been forced off of the upcoming UFC Fight Night Gdansk card.
MMA Junkie first reported the news.
The injured fighter was set to fight Warlley Alves in a preliminary card bout, which is set to stream live on UFC Fight Pass. There is no timetable at the moment as to when Wallhaed is expected to return from his injury.
Alves is expected to remain on the card at this time, as UFC officials are currently seeking a replacement for him to compete against.

Alves had won four fights in the UFC prior to the losing streak, most notably defeating Colby Covington by submission at UFC 194. Alves is also a longtime veteran of the Jungle Fight promotion, winning all of the fights he competed at in the promotion.
