TJ Dillashaw Out Of UFC 186 Title Fight With Rib Injury

 

 
UFC President Dana White said Tuesday that TJ Dillashaw has sustained a rib fracture that will force a postponement of his much-anticipated UFC 186 bantamweight rematch against Renan Barao in Montreal on April 25.

White revealed the news during an interview with Los Angeles radio personality Kurt "Big Boy" Alexander on KRRL-FM 92.3.

Dillashaw's injury occurred during training on Monday, White said. There is no immediate timetable for his return.
 
UPDATE: The flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and Kyoji Horiguchi has been moved up to the main event of UFC 186. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson's return to the Octagon against Fabio Maldonado will now take place as the co-main event. Abel Trujillo vs. John Makdessi has also been moved to the main card.
