Bobby Green out, Yancy Medeiros in vs. Jim Miller at UFC 172

USA TODAY Sports

Another injury has forced Bobby Green out of a UFC PPV, this time against Jim Miller at next week's UFC 172.

Just one week from the UFC's first visit to Baltimore, the injury bug has struck yet again. Lightweight Bobby Green, scheduled to fight Jim Miller on the main card of UFC 172, is out of the match-up with an undisclosed injury. Murmurs of Green's withdrawal were first reported via FrontRowBrian and later confirmed by MMA Junkie.

This is the second time that Green (22-5) has withdrawn due to injury this year, with his UFC 169 meeting with Abel Trujillo also nixed. He's undefeated in the UFC and holds wins over James Krause, Pat Healy, and Jacob Volkmann.

Word soon came in last night that officials plan to pluck Yancy Medeiros (9-1, 1 NC) from his prelim bout with Joe Ellenberger (via MMA Junkie) to take on the long-time veteran Miller. The UFC has not confirmed the news as of this publishing. Medeiros' last fight was a KO of Yves Edwards in November, but the result was flipped to a no contest following a failed drug test. His only defeat came via injury TKO against Rustam Khabilov last year.

There's no word yet on whether Joe Ellenberger will remain on the card, and if he does not, then it looks like UFC 172 will soldier on with just 10 fights and 0 Ellenbergers after both Joe and Jake were set to compete next Saturday.
