Josh Janousek Injured, Bout With Michael Kuiper Removed from UFC on Fox 6 Bill



Josh Janousek, the fourth proposed opponent for Michael Kuiper, has suffered an undisclosed injury and will not be able to compete at UFC on Fox 6.

Promotion officials revealed the news on Monday. With just five days remaining until Saturday’s card, the preliminary bout has been removed the event, which takes place at the United Center in Chicago. UFC on Fox 6 is headlined by a flyweight title clash between reigning champion Demetrious Johnson and “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 14 winner John Dodson.

Kuiper was originally scheduled to face Thiago de Oliveira Perpetuo at this past weekend’s UFC on FX 7 until the Brazilian withdrew from that contest due to a knee injury. Caio Magalhaes was tabbed as Perpetuo’s replacement on that same card. However, Magalhaes was also forced to pull out of the matchup, and Kuiper was then paired with Buddy Roberts at UFC on Fox 6. Roberts would exit the proposed bout due to illness and injury, leaving Janousek to take his place.

Kuiper is 1-1 in the Octagon, falling to Rafael Natal in his debut before scoring a TKO victory against Jared Hamman at UFC 150. Janousek, a former Division II All-American wrestler, had won eight of his nine professional bouts.
