Swede Andreas Ståhl is out of his upcoming planned bout versus veteran Kyle Noke in Australia on May 10. “Unfortunately, I have to cancel the fight and take 4-5 weeks due to a fractured rib” says Real Steel to MMAViking.com.
The Umeå based Stahl was seeking to get back on the winning track, after losing to Gilbert Burns in his UFC debut last July, where he suffered a broken jaw in the first round. It was the first loss for the Swede, who had won his first 9 bouts.
“No serious damage, I’ll just wait it out and then I’ll be back in no time!” – Ståhl
Newcomer Jonavin Webb is expected to now face Noke who coached Team Australia on TUF Nations before a 2014 loss to Patrick Cote. He has 20 wins and 7 losses with 1 draw.
The UFC Fight Night is headlined by heavyweight bout between Mark Hunt and Stipe Miocic.
