Carlos-Condit-UFC-143-WorkoutWith Matt Brown sustaining two herniated disks in his back, Carlos Condit is without a opponent and ultimately a fight at UFC on Fox 9.

The match-up was one of the most anticipated for the Sacramento, Calif. card, and that sentiment was true for both the fans and fighters. The reality, Condit said, leaves him let down and hoping for some after-holiday rescheduling.

“I was greatly disappointed to hear of Matt Brown’s injury,” Condit said in a statement. “This was a fight that I was looking forward to immensely, and I know it was a fight the fans have been excited to see. When the fight does happen, I promise that the wait will be worth it.

“Right now I’m going to spend time with my family over the holidays, and hope that Matt heals up quickly so that we can reschedule this fight soon.”

The Condit-Brown fight getting scrapped was another forced reshuffling of the UFC on Fox 9 card, which has undergone major makeovers in the weeks leading in. Initially, Anthony Pettis was scheduled to face T.J. Grant for the lightweight title in the evening’s headliner, then Grant was forced out due to injury. Thereafter, Pettis was to face Josh Thomson, but then Pettis pulled out. A flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson defending his belt in a rematch against Joseph Benavidez was slid in as the latest main event.

With Condit and Brown being the latest casualties from the injury bug, Joe Lauzon and Mac Danzig were moved up to the main card.

There are currently 11 fights scheduled for the Dec. 14 fight card.
