Former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit (29-7 MMA, 6-3 UFC) will have to wait a while longer if he wants his wish, a fight with fellow contender Matt Brown (18-11 MMA, 11-5 UFC).

Brown is out of their fight at next week’s UFC on FOX 9 card with an injury, and sources close to the promotion on Saturday told MMAjunkie no replacement will be sought to meet Condit on the card. Brown on Saturday tweeted news of his injury, saying he has two herniated discs in his back. Bleacher Report brought news of his withdrawal from the card prior to Brown’s announcement.

UFC on FOX 9 takes place Dec. 14 at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, Calif. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook. Condit vs. Brown was set to be part of the main card. But it is not yet known what fight from the preliminary portion of the show will be elevated to get the main card back to the standard four fights for a FOX-broadcast show.

Condit is ranked No. 3 and Brown is No. 9 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA welterweight rankings.

Brown, once a middle-of-the-road welterweight, has reeled off six straight UFC wins and stopped five of his opponents via knockout. Brown’s past two appearances have also won him bonuses for “Fight of the Night” and “Knockout of the Night.”

After losing a title-unification bout to champ Georges St-Pierre at UFC 154, Condit then suffered a decision loss to top contender Johny Hendricks. But the former WEC champ, who won the UFC’s interim title with a victory over Nick Diaz, recently rebounded with a TKO victory over Martin Kampmann in UFC Fight Night 27's headliner.

Condit earlier this fall told MMAjunkie Radio he’d like to fight the surging Brown. “He’s been on a tear, and it’d be really exciting for the fans,” Condit said.

With the cancelation, the latest UFC on FOX 9 card now includes:

MAIN CARD (FOX, 8 p.m. ET)

  • Demetrious Johnson vs. Joseph Benavidez – for UFC flyweight title
  • Urijah Faber vs. Michael McDonald
  • Nik Lentz vs. Chad Mendes
