An injury has forced Daniel ‘Ninja’ Roberts off this weekend’s UFC Fight Night card, so UFC newcomer Mike Stumpf will step in to face T.J. Waldburger instead.
The new fight was announced by the UFC on Monday.
According to sources inside Roberts’ camp, the fighter suffered an injury in training just in the last day or so and was forced to pull out of the fight. The nature and severity of the injury are unknown at this time.
Taking Roberts’ place will be Team Curran fighter Mike Stumpf who makes his UFC debut with an 11-2 record overall.
Stumpf has fought in several promotions over the years, but primarily in the Midwest based XFO shows.
The bout between Stumpf and Waldburger will remain on the preliminary portion of the show taking place in New Orleans this weekend.
