Report: Antonio Carlos Jr. Injured, Bout Pulled From UFC Fight Night Brasilia

This March’s UFC Fight Night Brasilia card is going to move forward with one less bout as a middleweight division encounter between Antonio Carlos Jr. and Makhmud Muradov has been pulled from the card.

MMA Junkie first reported the news, citing an undisclosed injury to Carlos Jr. as the reason for the bouts cancellation.

Muradov commented on the situation via Instagram:


Ассаламу Алейкум Добрый день! К сожалению мой следующий бой 14 марта отменён. Мой соперник получил травму, желаю ему скорейшего выздоровления, надеюсь в будущем мы ещё встретимся в октагоне -- Моя команда ведёт переговоры по поводу следующего боя, где и когда будет следующий бой скоро сообщим Ин Ша Аллах ---- Всем вам большое спасибо за вашу поддержку -- все по воле Всевышнего Альхамдулиллах ------ —————————————————————Ahoj Všem moc mě to mrzí, ale mám pro vás špatnou zprávu. Zápas v Brazílii který se měl konat 14.3. Se bohužel neuskuteční můj soupeř Carlos Jr se zranil i to k tomuhle sportu patří a já bych mu rád popřál brzké uzdravení. Snad se ještě někdy utkáme. Nebudu součástí turnaje v Brazílii ale to nevadi my jedeme dál a mákáme. Stále jednáme s UFC jakmile budu vědět o dalším zápase určitě vám dám vědět. Děkuji za vaší podporu. ————————————————————-Hi everybody, I am so sorry, but I have some bad news for you. My announced match, in Brazil, against Carlos Jr. is not gonna happen. My opponent was injured and isn’t able to take part in this bount. This, as many other miserable things, simply belong to this sport and I would only like to wish him an early recovery. Hopefully, we will fight, against each other, sometime in the future! Per conseqences, I won’t be part of the tournament in Brazil, but it doesn’t matter, we go on and continue to work even harder. We are negotiating with the UFC, and as soon as I’ll know something new, about my next fight I’ll definitely let you know. Thank you for your support! —————————————————————— #muradov #alhamdulillah #tmt #ufc
