UFC officials have announced that the planned lightweight bout between Joe Ellenberger against Vagner Rocha for UFC 172 has been cancelled. Rocha suffered an injury during last-minute training this week in Baltimore, Maryland and has been forced to withdraw from the bout. Ellenberger's Octagon debut will now have to wait.
UFC 172, set for April 26, will now have only 10 fights. Danny Castillo vs. Charlie Brenneman has now been moved from the UFC Fight Pass prelims to the Fox Sports 1 prelims of the event.
