It looks as though UFC Fight Night 60 has lost it’s original headliner, as Tarec Saffiedine has reportedly withdrawn from his bout with Matt Brown.

The welterweight contenders are scheduled to battle on February 14th, but according to a report from MMA Junkie.com, sources have told the outlet that Saffiedine has suffered a groin injury.

The UFC has not announced the injury.

Saffiedine (15-4) went 1-1 in 2014, as after the Belgian decisioned Hyun Gyu Lim in January, he was stopped by Rory MacDonald in October.

The noted striker has fought just three times since 2012.

UFC FN 60 will take place at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.
