UFC Loses Another Main Event Fight


Things are starting to get scary here in the early goings of 2015, as UFC has lost yet another scheduled main event fight.

UFC Fight Night 60 will undergo a significant change, as the originally planned main event between Stephen Thompson and Brandon Thatch is out the window.

“Wonderboy” Thompson has pulled out of the fight due to injury, leaving UFC scrambling to find a replacement opponent for Thatch on just two weeks notice.

UFC Fight Night 60 is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 14th from the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, airing live on FOX Sports 1.

The rest of the UFN 60 lineup, which at this point remains in tact, looks as follows:
