UFC FN 46: Cole Miller Withdrawing Due to Injury, Diego Brandao to Face Conor McGregor
By FCF Staff
It looks as though Conor McGregor and Cole Miller will have to settle their differences at a later date, as the UFC has announced that the latter has withdrawn from their July 19th bout due to injury. TUF 14 winner Diego Brandao has agreed to step in and face McGregor at UFC FN 46.
According to an announcement from the UFC, Miller has been forced to the sidelines due to torn ligaments in his thumb.
Brandao (18-9) hasn’t competed since December, when he was knocked out by Dustin Poirier at UFC 168. Prior to the loss the featherweight had won three straight bouts.
McGregor (14-2) will be fighting for the first time since August, when he scored a unanimous decision win over Max Hollaway. The Irish fighter injured his knee in the fight, however, and has been sidelined since.
UFC FN 46 will be hosted by the O2 in Dublin.
