Riddle Out With Injury Matt Brown Left With No Opponent


MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

Matt Brown was initially scheduled to meet Mark Scanlon at UFC Live 3 on March 3rd. The prospect of that meeting quickly fizzled, as Scanlon was forced to withdraw from the bout citing an injury. Of course, Brown had little to do but wait and hope for another opponent to fill the void.

Just when things looked down for Brown, fellow TUF alum Matt riddle answered the call of duty on short notice. A barn burner seemed all but inevitable with these two toeing the line, but then the unthinkable happened; Riddle too was forced from the card citing a hand injury suffered while training.
