Cedenblad Replaces Injured Watson, Meets Sakara at UFC Fight Night 30 in Manchester
*Wait, someone pulled out of a Sakara fight and it wasn't Alessio?
An undisclosed injury has forced Tom Watson out of his scheduled UFC Fight Night 30 encounter with Alessio Sakara.
The UFC’s United Kingdom branch announced on Sunday that Magnus Cedenblad will replace Watson against Sakara on the Oct. 26 card, which takes place at Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England. UFC Fight Night 30 is headlined by a middleweight clash between Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz.
“Thanks to everyone for your support,” Watson tweeted. “My injury will keep me out of contact training for around 8-10 weeks. I really hope to fight again in 2013.”
