Story was coming off a submission win over Leonardo Mafra Texeira heading into his bout with Nelson, and now holds a record of 18-8.
The fighter reportedly told MMA Fighting.com that he is scheduled to meet with his doctor on Wednesday, but that the initial diagnosis is that he fractured his tibia.
