Fan favorite, Alan Jouban, has just announced via Facebook that he is out of his fight with Danny Roberts. The two were set to square off on the main card of the Hamburg fight night from Germany. Jouban withdraws from the fight and leaves Roberts with no opponent. Hopefully, the UFC can find him a late replacement.
“FIGHT CANCELLED! Well, if you didn’t already know I had to cancel my fight next weekend due to injury. Looks like a bulged disc in my neck but won’t know for certain till the MRI. Sorry folks. Believe me, I wanted nothing more than to roll into Germany and steal the damn show with a crazy ass fight and fly home with a bonus in my pocket. But just wasn’t meant to be this time.
As soon as I’m good to go, I do plan on getting right back to where I left off and taking the quickest fight I can find. I still have goals to meet this year and that’s not changing. Just gonna take a little longer, but still gonna get there.”
Let’s hope that Jouban heals quickly because he’s one of the more exciting fighters on the UFC roster. This is a major blow to the Hamburg card and hopefully Jouban heals up quickly and we can see him sooner than later.
