UFC On FOX 8: Matt Mitrione-Brendan Schaub Called Off

Heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Brendan Schaub will not meet later this month at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga.

Mitrione suffered an injury in training and has been forced off the card from Seattle. The bout, which was set for the prelims, will be moved to a later date.

Mitrione (6-2) earned a win over Philip De Fries earlier this year, while Schaub (9-3) snapped a losing skid of his own with a decision win over Lavar Johnson.
