Five days after UFC President Dana White made the announcement that Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Alexander Gustafsson would square off on March 8 in England, Nogueira has pulled out of the fight. According to reports, Nogueira has a lingering back problem and he won’t be able to start training until February of 2014.
The UFC has made no announcement about the injury, or who Gustafsson will face next. MMAfighting was the first to report the story.
