Just a day after UFC 223 lost a spectacular fight, UFC Glendale has followed suit.
Matt Brown has torn his ACL, and is out of his contest with Carlos Condit on April 14. Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting first reported the news.

It had been regarded as an exciting clash between two veteran welterweights, particularly with both edging closer and closer to retirement in recent times. Similarly to the recently scrapped Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov bout, this is not the first time a Brown vs. Condit has been scheduled and failed to materialise.
They were first set to fight at UFC on FOX 9, when Brown withdrew with a back injury.
UFC on FOX 29 takes place in Glendale, Arizona on April 14.
