The stacked UFC 226 card has taken its first blow. Yancy Medeiros is out of his scheduled welterweight bout against Mike Perry next weekend.

A UFC official today told MMAjunkie that Medeiros (15-5 MMA, 6-5 UFC) won’t be able to compete against Perry (11-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) because of an undisclosed injury. A replacement opponent is being sought.

“I can’t believe this mother(expletive) man,” Perry said on Instagram. “I mean, being hurt is part of being an MMA fighter. I don’t think I’ve ever gone into a fight 100 percent. I’m always hurt. I’m hurt right now. I’m still going to show up and collect that check, break some neck.”
