A rib injury recently suffered by George Sotiropolous (9-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has opened a door for UFC newcomer Matt Veach (10-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).
Veach, a member of the Illinois-based HIT Squad, replaces Sotiropolous in a UFC Fight Night 17 preliminary bout with Matt Grice (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC). A source close to Grice confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com.
Not like anyone really gives too much of a shit about this fight or anything, but that’s now the fourth fighter to be hit with bad mojo from this card. Not like we believe in curses or anything, but it is kinda entertaining when probability bitchslaps the UFC like this.
