UFC on FOX 9 is Officially Cursed: Injured Matt Brown Out of Fight With Carlos Condit

We don’t want to freak you out, but curses are real. Our last five posts about UFC on FOX 9 have all been injury related. Our sixth post about the event is worst of all: Matt Brown is out of his fight with Carlos Condit due to a back injury.

The best fight left on the card after a series of injuries ravaged it is gone now. If you’re not keeping score, here’s a rundown of how injury-plagued this fight card has been:

Ian McCall was taken off the card in late October due to injury. In mid-November, the card lost its biggest star in lightweight champ Anthony Pettis. Then the card lost both Kelvin Gastelum *and* Jamie Varner. Former flyweight contender John Moraga fell to the curse next, and John Dodson after him. Now, it’s Matt Brown.

That’s seven fighters the card lost!

Maybe GSP’s alien friends are punishing the UFC for Dana White’s treatment of the champ? Perhaps the UFC has lost the favor of the MMA gods by forcing fans to pay for unfit for television, jobber-level matches? Or maybe the UFC is just exceptionally unlucky?

Either way, UFC on FOX 9 is a shadow of its former self. There are still some decent to above-average fights on it, but it’s no longer a must-see, free-card-of-the-year. Bummer.

    [...] The once-much-better main card began with a mismatch (though it was fun to watch). Joe Lauzon brutalized the hopelessly outmatched Mac Danzig for 15 minutes en route to a unanimous decision victory. It was a bloody affair. Lauzon tempered his intensity with caution, not over-pursuing any finishes. Instead, he remained content with control and moderate amounts of damage that snowballed into the end result: Danzig’s face looking like it had gone through a wood chipper. [...]
