Kyung Ho Kang off UFC on Fuel 6 card with injury, Caceres awaits new opponent

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Korean bantamweight Kyung Ho Kang (11-6) will have to wait a little longer to make his UFC debut. He was expected to face off with Alex Caceres at UFC on Fuel 6 on November 10th, but has suffered an injury and had to pull out. He explained the injury to the Korean Media (via Fighters Only):

"It was my own carelessness. Its so bad," he told Korean media. "This was such a big opportunity that I have been working really hard, sparring very hard, there were a lot of expectations and I had so many family and friends who bought tickets to fly to Macau. Its hard for me to express in words about this situation... its so bad."

...

"I’ve missed the chance to debut in Macau now but it will only make me work harder and more determined to recover. I want to make a stunning fight maybe in the United States next year, February or March maybe," says Kang.

Caceres (7-5) remains on the card while the UFC looks for a last-minute replacement for him. The bout was to take place on the main card, and it remains to see if it will stay there with a new opponent.
