Fabio Maldonado Suffers Injury, UFC on Versus 6 Fight with Aaron Rosa Called Off

Light heavyweights, Fabio Maldonado and Aaron Rosa will not appear on the UFC on Versus 6 card in Washington, D.C. on October 1st after Maldonado suffered an undisclosed injury in training this past week resulting in the fight being called off altogether.

Maldonado was looking to get back to winning ways after losing a unanimous decision to Kyle Kingsbury in June. Prior to that he knocked out out British TUF cast member, James McSweeney in his octagon debut.

Rosa made his octagon debut in the heavyweight division against Joey Beltran, losing the fight via TKO in the third and final round. This fight would have gave him a chance to showcase his skills at his natural weight of 205lbs.
