Less than a week after he was announced for a fight on the card, an injury has knocked Sean Soriano from the UFC’s debut in Orlando, Fla.
Soriano (8-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is out of his featherweight bout against Estevan Payan (14-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) and has been replaced by Mike Brown (26-9 MMA, 2-4 UFC) at UFC on FOX 11 in April. UFC officials announced the news on Wednesday.
UFC on FOX 11 takes place April 19 at Amway Center in Orlando. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass. It will be the UFC’s first trip to Florida in nearly two years and first card in Orlando.
