Nick Penner Injured, Light Heavyweight Bout with Tom DeBlass Nixed from UFC on Fuel TV 4
A planned light heavyweight contest between Nick Penner
has been scratched from the
UFC on Fuel TV 4
Penner recently suffered an undisclosed injury and will be unable
to compete at the July 11 event. As a result, the Las Vegas-based
promotion has elected to scrap the contest altogether. The news was
announced during Tuesday night’s episode of “UFC Tonight” on Fuel
DeBlass (Pictured) will be booked to compete at a future event, and
UFC on Fuel TV 4 will move forward with 11 bouts, according to
promotion officials. The show takes place at HP Pavilion in San
Jose, Calif., and is headlined by a middleweight tilt between
former NCAA All-American wrestlers Chris
Weidman and Mark
Penner, 32, recently saw an eight-fight winning streak snapped by
Australian grappling specialist Anthony
Perosh, who pounded out the Canadian with just one second
remaining in the first round of their March 3 confrontation. Penner
has finished nine of his 11 career victims inside the distance,
stopping five of them by submission.
DeBlass, 30, suffered his first pro defeat when he stepped up on
two weeks’ notice to face Cyrille
Diabate at UFC on Fuel TV 2 in Stockholm. Though the Ricardo
Almeida Jiu-Jitsu representative started the contest with a
takedown, he fatigued noticeably as the bout wore on, eventually
dropping a majority decision to “The Snake.” Prior to his UFC
stint, DeBlass fought his entire pro career in Ring of Combat,
recording five finishes in seven wins en route to capturing the
promotion’s light heavyweight title.
