Luke Rockhold has reportedly withdrawn from his UFC 230 co-main event contest against Chris Weidman due to injury.

This is now the second time the UFC have failed to get these two into the octagon together for a second helping.

Having fought and won against Weidman at UFC 194 to win the 185lb title, Rockhold then lost the belt after ‘The All-American’ pulled from their UFC 199 rematch – allowing Michael Bisping to take the fight on short-notice, a fight he won in the first round.

Brett Okamoto of ESPN reported first that AKA’s Rockhold was pulled from the fight.

It is unclear at this point if Chris Weidman will remain on the card with a new opponent.
