UFC Brooklyn: Ion Cutelaba out of fight against Glover Teixeira

Another injury has forced a late change to the UFC’s first card of the year which is due to take place next weekend in Brooklyn, New York.

With John Lineker already pulling out of his fight with Cory Sandhagen, another fight is now in jeopardy as Ion Cutelaba (14-3) is out of his fight against former light heavyweight title contender Glover Teixeira.

The news was reported first by MMAJunkie.com although the UFC have not officially announced the two injuries at the time of this article being published.

With 8 days to go until the event is due to take place, it is unclear as to whether or not the UFC will seek new opponents for Teixeira and Sandhagen.
