Ed Herman forced to withdraw from UFC 209 fight with Pokrajac

The injury bug has reared it’s head again, forcing Ed Herman off of UFC 209

Ed Herman is a tough fighter, who has never been forced to pull out of a fight before. So you can imagine it was with a bit of trepidation that he took to Twitter today to announce the unfortunate news.  An undisclosed injury has forced him to withdraw from UFC 209, and his fight with Igor Pokrajac. Here’s the tweet from Ed Herman.

The UFC has yet to name a replacement fight for Pokrajac who lost in his last outing but had won three in a row prior to that.  Igor Pokrajac has an overall record of 28-13.

UFC 209 is set to take place March 4th, 2017 and is headlined by two title fights.  Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson will meet once again to determine the Welterweight champion. Their last clash resulted in a draw.  In the other feature fight, the Lightweight interim title will be up for grabs. Tony Ferguson will square off with Khabib Nurmagomedov.  The event takes place on PPV from the TMobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
