Report: Luigi Vendramini Injured, Off UFC Fight Night Stockholm


Luigi Vendramini has suffered a serious knee injury that will require surgery and has been pulled from an upcoming bout against Nick Hein at UFC Fight Night Stockholm.

MMA Fighting first reported the news, but no indication has been given at this time as to how long Vendramini is expected to be out of action for. Hein is also expected to remain on the card at this time, as UFC officials have a little over a month to find him a suitable replacement opponent for Hein to fight at the event this June.
