Rory MacDonald Out of UFC 158 Bout

February 18, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Rory MacDonald has been scratched from a fight with Carlos Condit at UFC 158. MacDonald was forced to withdraw from the card due to a health injury and Johny Hendricks has stepped in to face Condit instead.

Dana White revealed the news on Monday, saying, “Once we knew Rory had to withdraw, we started looking for potential replacements. Johny Hendricks called me and said he wanted that fight, so we’re going to give it to him a shot at Carlos.”

The show takes place March 16th in Montreal, with the main card airing on PPV following prelims on F/X and Facebook.
